STOUGHTON, Wis., June 1, 2005 — A detailed guide to major international 3PLs and supply chain managers has been released by Armstrong & Associates. Who’s Who In International Logistics – Armstrong’s Guide to Global Supply Chain Management is a buyer’s guide covering logistics services on every continent.

Who’s Who In International Logistics profiles individual company financial information, key personal, IT usage and service capabilities. In addition, editorial evaluations, case studies and important news events are given. Information is presented in sufficient detail to allow companies to quickly develop choices for outsourcing.

Global companies like UPS SCS, DHL, FedEx, Kuehne + Nagel, TNT and Exel are covered extensively. Capable mid-sized companies like SembCorp, Wincanton, Kerry Logistics, Luis Simoes, KWE, Wice and similar companies are given equal billing.

The international guide and its companion, Who’s Who In North American Logistics and Supply Chain Management, comprise the 13th edition of Armstrong logistics guides. The North American guide is a key resource for the U.S. and its neighbors Canada and Mexico. The North American guide covers 115 3PLs.

“Our guides are a primary information source for supply chain outsourcing and management,” said Richard Armstrong, president of Armstrong & Associates. “We are pleased with the quality of our Asian and European information expansion. The inclusion of our industry summary statistics adds real value for our readers. The new option of purchasing the volumes separately should be helpful to buyers.”

The two volumes contain over 800 pages. They are available as PDF files which will be updated twice during the 13th edition, or as an on-line subscription. On-line subscribers receive the PDF files as part of their purchases.
