BlueGrace Recognized as Dominant Provider
Prestigious distinction symbolizes the best innovative IT practices to enable company growth
Tampa, FL (August 24, 2022) – BlueGrace Logistics has been conferred with three distinguished awards by the supply chain industry’s preeminent publications and media outlets: Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers (Food Logistics), 100 Great Supply Chain Partners (SupplyChainBrain), and Top 100 3PL Providers (Inbound Logistics).
“Our team is elated to receive recognition from several of the industry’s most well-read publications. We fully acknowledge that without our customers, diverse carrier network and dedicated team members at BlueGrace, we would not be in this valuable position. We cater to LTL and Truckload supply chain strategies using best in class technology and procurement capabilities, always looking to add value regardless of market conditions,” said Bobby Harris, Founder and CEO of BlueGrace Logistics. “It’s rewarding to see when everything comes together and we’re able to make an impact on a stakeholder’s sales growth and opportunities.”
Food Logistics’ 2022 Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers award recognizes leading third-party logistics and cold storage providers in the cold food and beverage industry. “These past 18 months have been so challenging for U.S. supply chains. But, it’s the drivers, the fleet, the warehouses and software/technologies that really keep today’s supply chains in line,” said Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These 3PLs and cold storage providers have collaborated on all facets of their operations to achieve full visibility, complete forecasting, end-to-end leverage and the ultimate in sustainability.”
Recipients of this year’s award are profiled in Food Logistics’ July/Aug 2022 print issue as well as online at www.FoodLogistics.com.
