KANE has received Boise Paper’s 2018 3PL of the Year Award for best overall distribution center performance. The award recognizes operational excellence in logistics throughout Boise Paper’s physical distribution system.
Boise Paper has 24 distribution centers (DCs) in its U.S. network. Annually, the company’s supply chain and logistics leadership team rates and ranks these operations on nine key operational measures: customer service, shipping and receiving accuracy, process adherence, ease of doing business, IT interface, business relationship, transportation, product handling and storage, and inventory accuracy. On these measures, KANE outperformed Boise Paper’s other third-party logistics (3PL) providers to earn the 3PL of the Year award.
Glen Maryanski, Senior Supply Chain Manager for Boise Paper, presented the award to KANE’s Allentown warehouse during a celebratory lunch for all the associates on December 20, 2018. He shared with event attendees that “KANE’s perfect score in customer service is extremely impressive and helped differentiate this site above all others.”
KANE previously won the award in 2016.
Commenting on the award, Kane Is Able President and CEO, Mike Gardner said, “This is a great example of our associates’ working philosophy of sweating the details, avoiding surprises, and honoring our word. We appreciate our partnership with Boise Paper and we thank them for this recognition. I know our associates think of Boise Paper as part of our family, and it makes me proud that we treat them as such.”
