PITTSBURGH, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to global supply chain solutions for the food and beverage industry, last week announced those companies chosen for its 2014 Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers list.

Earning a spot on the list is GENCO, a leading North American third-party logistics provider. GENCO provides product lifecycle logistics® solutions to approximately 60 manufacturers in the consumer packaged goods and industrial space, including two of the top 5 U.S. food and beverage companies.

"GENCO prides itself on delivering customized and innovative solutions," says Andy Smith, president of GENCO's consumer & industrial logistics business. "We're honored to be named a top 3PL provider, and look to continue to 'raise the bar' to meet our customers' needs."

GENCO was named a Top Green Provider by Food Logistics in 2013 and a Top 100 3PL Provider by the publication in 2012.

The Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers serves as a resource directory of third-party logistics and cold storage providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.

"Our growing list of 3PLs and cold storage providers indicates how important these two segments are to the food industry and the level of expertise and services required to support today's growers and processors, shippers, and grocery retailers," noted Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief for Food Logistics. "Assuring a safe and secure global food supply chain is paramount. In addition, reducing food waste, managing fuel and energy costs, and responding to new demands related to omnichannel retailing are just some of the expectations the food industry has of their 3PL and cold storage providers."

Companies on this year's Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers list will be profiled in the August 2014 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at
