EDEN PRAIRIE, MINNESOTA (August 17, 2016) For the first time, C.H. Robinson, a global leader in third party logistics (3PL), was selected to Selling Power’s 2016 50 Best Companies to Sell For list, ranking #37 tied with Google and Microsoft.

“This accolade acknowledges our journey to become a world-class sales force!” said James Santy, vice president of network sales at C.H. Robinson. “We empower our sales team members to do their jobs for their customers by providing them with the tools and training to be successful.”

Selling Power 50 Best

C.H. Robinson employs over 1,500 sales people globally. On a weekly basis, several offices hold trainings to practice peer-to-peer sales skills and discuss timely topics. Quarterly, the sales team works on cutting-edge sales strategies and techniques.

Companies were judged on compensation, culture, onboarding and sales-enablement strategies, training, and turnover. Selling Power magazine, the leading periodical for sales managers and sales VPs since 1981, founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says the companies on the list support excellence in sales in the following ways:

1. They support salespeople via coaching, training, and offering sales-enablement solutions. 

2. They keep salespeople motivated. 

3. They create an active selling culture.

This accolade is the latest of C.H. Robinson’s recent wins which include being named by the readers of Inbound Logistics as its #1 3PL for a sixth year, ranked on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list, and awarded with the Customer Service Team of the Year from Coca-Cola amongst other customer awards.

“C.H. Robinson is a leader – both inside our industry and alongside our customers,” said Santy. “Our sales force is a big reason why we’re the standard. They go above and beyond for our 100,000+ customers, helping them work smarter, not harder.”
