SEKO Logistics, an IORMA Associate, has been named a Multichannel Merchant (MCM) Top 3PL for 2016, recognizing the growing importance of logistics and transportation in ecommerce and marketplaces and how they are adding value to the retail supply chain.
Multichannel Merchant reaches key decision-makers responsible for ecommerce, management, marketing and operations at companies that sell merchandise through multiple channels — including ecommerce, mobile, social, and catalog. With the growth of ecommerce and the number of 3PLs growing, MCM felt it was important to designate 3PLs that were ecommerce qualified and experienced.
It has now produced an online resource with a searchable database for merchants looking for expert third-party ecommerce fulfillment and logistics services providers. Merchants will be able to see each service provider’s featured capabilities, ideal client types, equipment and systems, contact information and more.
Mark White, Chief Commercial Officer at SEKO Logistics, said: “We know that Multichannel Merchant conducted an extensive review and analysis process in order to qualify Top 3PL companies for 2016 and it’s a real coup for us to be in its first-ever listing. Retail is our biggest and fast-growing customer sector and this award reflects the increasingly vital role transport and logistics companies are playing as outsourced partners in a market that grew by over 25% last year and saw global consumers spend over $1.6 trillion online.”
This is SEKO Logistics’ third such award in the past six months. In 2015, it was ranked in the top 10 logistics service providers in Inbound Logistics’ annual Top 100 3PL Providers list for the second consecutive year following an evaluation of more than 300 companies. It was also recognized as the highest ranking freight forwarder for customer service for the second year in a row in the prestigious Quest for Quality Awards determined by over 4,500 logistics, transportation and supply chain decision-maker readers of Logistics Management magazine.
SEKO Logistics’ Omni-Channel Logistics services are built around a network of multi-user logistics sites in the U.S., Asia and Europe which allows e-tailers and retailers to outsource their entire ecommerce-focused global fulfillment, delivery management, returns solutions and ecommerce development and design alongside international logistics.
