Howard S. Abramson, Publisher of Transport Topics and its annual Top 50 list, explained the need for logistics companies able serve the great needs of customers in a recovering economy, “More than ever, it seems, shippers need to have the right amount of inventory in the right places at the right time. And that is creating plenty of challenges — and business opportunities — for logistics companies.”
