Inbound Logistics Recognizes ArcBest Companies, ABF Freight and Panther Premium Logistics

FORT SMITH, Ark., Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ArcBest CorporationSM is pleased to announce that two of its companies – ABF FreightSM and Panther Premium LogisticsSM – have earned recognition as Inbound Logistics Top 100 Truckers for 2014.

Each year, Inbound Logistics editors select the best transportation providers by carefully evaluating submitted information, conducting personal interviews and online research, and comparing that data to the magazine's readers' growing motor freight and logistics challenges.

"This year was challenging for the editorial team as they had to select 100 trucking leaders from more than 250 companies that submitted their credentials," said Felecia Stratton, Inbound Logistics editor.

ArcBest solves complex transportation and logistics solutions through its four operating companies, ABF Freight, ABF LogisticsSM, Panther Premium Logistics and FleetNet America®.
