CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – June 10, 2024 – Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, named Kenco, a leading North American third-party logistics provider, as one of the winners of this year’s Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers Award.

“As the cold food and beverage space becomes more complex with increased cost pressures, fluctuating demand, and eyes on quality, we’re committed to making it simpler for our customers,” said David Caines, Chief Operating Officer at Kenco. “It’s an honor to be recognized by Food Logistics and we look forward to continue innovating for our customers.”

This year’s award winners offer a variety of 3PL services including LTL/TL, refrigerated trucking and truckload brokerage as well as cold storage services including cross docking, warehousing/distribution management and fulfillment and EDI capabilities.
