The Top Food Chain Provider program highlights third-party logistics companies, freight brokers, motor carriers, rail/intermodal and maritime companies that excel in capabilities and service to food transportation, logistics, distribution and supply chain management, according to the publication.
For this year’s list, nearly 6,000 participants in the food industry voted for organizations with the strongest reputations and value in the food chain technology segment. As part of the process, companies earning an adequate volume of votes are validated, which helped to identify the companies named to the list.
“Food shippers rely upon their logistics partners and carriers to help manage a productive, efficient and seamless food chain,” said Brian Everett, group publisher and editorial director of Food Chain Digest. “A common theme for the companies on the 2022 list is that they have been providing significant value to food shippers at a time when demand in all modes has been surging while the people and assets needed to move and store goods and materials remain scarce.”
