“To be positioned in the Leaders’ box of the Magic Quadrant is undeniably a milestone for Menlo.” said Robert L. Bianco Jr., president of Menlo Logistics. “We believe it reaffirms our culture of Lean continuous improvement, our commitment to innovation and our focus on high-performing supply chain management solutions which deliver measured and validated results for customers.”
According to Gartner, “The North American logistics industry providers allow customers to outsource, either completely or partially, their logistics operations to external specialists. Many companies view logistics outsourcing as an effective strategy primarily to reduce costs, but more and more customers seek service improvements at the same time. Dramatic changes in the business conditions over the years have enhanced the significance of supply chain management and logistics.”
