The highly reputable and widely read, Global Trade Magazine recently released the 2015 Global Logistics Report identifying and ranking 105 leading companies in the categories of technology, growth, innovation, sustainability and more. Indiana-based TOC Logistics International, was recognized as a Top 15 Third Party Logistics (3PL) Company to Watch in America.
“Being featured in Global Trade Magazine demonstrates to our customers, prospective customers, and others in the industry that TOC is committed to being the best,” says Brent Case, Global Development Executive at TOC. “Our mission is to provide innovative logistics solutions that meet or exceed our customer’s needs and expectations; we take pride in that mission. TOC’s growing brand recognition, and ultimately revenue growth, is what Global Trade has noticed, which doesn’t happen unless we’re achieving our mission. This mention is an honor and will only grow our credibility, recognition, and legitimacy in the global logistics community.”
After six years as a division of a larger 3PL, in 2010 TOC Logistics International split out on its own when it was purchased by President and CEO Gary Cardenas, a 30-year veteran of the logistics industry. The company has experienced 50% growth in the last year, with 20% growth anticipated for 2015. TOC has become a full-fledged NVOCC (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers) and independent air carrier, which serves to enhance their value and their ability to manage the entire global supply chain.
The Global Logistics Report makes the point that the 3PL arms race has been a big win for shippers. As third-party logistics companies (3PLs) rush to expand their reach and suite of services, shippers have become the beneficiaries of one-stop shops for everything supply chain.
“TOC Logistics true value and what differentiates us from the competition is our global supplier consolidation programs,” said Case. “We assist customers, through superior customer service and reliability, in stabilizing inventory and reducing total logistics spend. Being identified as a Top 15 3PL gives confidence to our current customers and provides shippers that may not be happy with their current logistics provider a trustworthy name in the industry that they could consider.”
