Clients are exceptionally loyal to Kenco—average length of customer relationships being 17 years—in part because of how well and quickly the company can implement new services.

PENSKE
Founded 1969 | Global | Asset & Non-Asset Based
Though it has a domestic client list that includes the likes of Ford, Whirlpool, General Motors and many, many more, Penske seems intent on further strengthening its reach and capabilities in the United States. It recently acquired Transfreight North America, which operated 27 locations, many in the Midwest. Transfreight will bring resources to a Penske menu already offering specialized solutions for industries as wide ranging as food and beverage, automotive, chemical, publishing, packaging, pharmaceuticals and retail. penskelogistics.com

PERFORMANCE TEAM
Founded 1986 | Domestic | Asset & Non-Asset Based

RUAN
Founded 1932 | North America | Asset & Non-Asset Based
Despite an ongoing, critical national shortage of truck drivers, Ruan has managed to find and retain the most valuable resource in over-the-road transportation. Consider that of the company’s 5,200 employees, 4,200 are drivers. Those drivers have access to managers who direct individuals and fleets from the company’s 270 sites nationwide. That has a lot to do with the company having an astounding 99.8 on-time delivery rate while enjoying a driver turnover rate that’s just one-fifth of the industry average. ruan.com

SADDLE CREEK LOGISTICS
Founded 1966 | North America | Asset & Non-Asset Based
Once a very regional concern, Saddle Creek’s combination of offering comprehensive integrated logistics solutions with value-added services such as light manufacturing, packaging and e-fulfillment, has helped the Florida-based company greatly improve its national reach. It recently signed the largest industrial lease in the Midwest when it agreed to relocate its Illinois operations to a new, 1.1-million-square-foot, build-to-suit facility in Joliet. Worked by more than 250 employees, the space will nearly double Saddle Creek’s Midwest footprint. sclogistics.com

WAGNER LOGISTICS
Founded 1946 | North America | Asset & Non-Asset Based

Wagner not only excels at transportation and warehousing but fulfilment and packaging; the company offers a wide array of value-added services ranging from sub- and final assembly, to kiting, point-of-sale displays, labeling and sorting. wagnerlogistics.com
