ST. LOUIS -- United Van Lines, one of nations largest transportation companies, was named one of the Top 100 Motor Carriers by Inbound Logistics magazine. United was one of the two moving and storage companies that made the list.
United was chosen by the magazines editors from more than 300 motor carriers, including the largest, most well-known companies and smaller niche providers. The main criteria was not the size or revenue of the company, but its ability to provide solutions that best meet the needs of the magazines more than 200,000 readers who are logistics professionals. The readers include senior managers as well as logistics, transportation, supply chain and purchasing professionals in businesses that currently use third-party logistics services.
"Given the growing acceptance of inbound practices, and the complexity of better matching supply to demand, it's impressive to see United Van Lines providing the kinds of solutions Inbound Logistics readers need, said Felecia Stratton, editor of Inbound Logistics.
It's tough to keep up with customer needs in any environment, but the speed with which change is happening is a testament to Uniteds ability to continue to meet, and in some cases, anticipate customers' evolving needs. For that reason, Inbound Logistics editors have recognized United Van Lines as one of this year's Top 100 Motor Carriers."
"United is greatly honored to be recognized by Inbound Logistics for our achievements, said Carl Walter, vice president of marketing for United Van Lines. We are committed to exceeding our customers expectations and meeting their global needs.
