"The growth of our global portfolio of services is integral to our customers' success. Moreover, it has helped us meet the challenges that all 3PLs face today and the ever-growing needs of our clients for efficiency and reliability. We are quite proud to have achieved this recognition."

    OL&T manages inbound and outbound logistics for its customers, including complete transportation services such as carrier selection and qualification, contract negotiations, claims and non-conformance management and reporting, as well as tendering and freight audit and payment services.
