PINC Solutions, the leader in cost-effective, real-time asset visibility technology, has been named by Inbound Logistics Magazine among its 2008 Top 100 Logistics IT Providers.
As part of the annual logistics IT issue published by Inbound Logistics every April, the editors selected the qualifiers from more than 300 candidates by matching reader feedback with technology companies deemed to be suitable to deliver the best value to an ever-expanding and demanding shipper community with diverse IT needs.
