The annual Top 10 3PL Excellence Awards, organized by Inbound Logistics, are an opportunity for supply chain professionals from small, medium, and large companies across a broad range of industries to commend the logistics providers they believe offer the best service, reliability, and communication.

C.H. Robinson invests in finding and building talent throughout the organization and around the world. Providing customers with support and expertise through single points of contact is a strong principle of C.H. Robinson’s approach to the market.

Robinson’s 13th appearance as a best place to work by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal on their 2014 “Best Places to Work” list.

“At C.H. Robinson, our people have always been one of our strongest competitive advantages,” said Ronnie Davis, director of account management at C.H.
