GEODIS recognized as a leader in Gartner's June 2020 Magic Quadrant for third-party logistics, worldwide*
Gartner evaluates vendors based on their ability to execute and for completeness of vision, and has positioned GEODIS in the Leaders quadrant in its 2020 Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics, Worldwide.
According to Gartner, “Leaders rate well on the highly weighted criteria for both Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. This means the leading providers have extensive service offerings and infrastructure and make them available across an expansive global footprint.” Furthermore, “Leaders also have well-structured strategies and business models to continue to expand their capabilities, regional coverage and industry specialization, and they are adept at offering services for different customer segments.”
"We particularly value this recognition because we believe it illustrates the spirit of success that we have in GEODIS. Behind great successes in business there is great logistics – at GEODIS that is what we aim to deliver every day, to every customer, from start-ups to global players”, says Marie-Christine Lombard, GEODIS Chief Executive Officer. “Our objective of sustainable growth encourages us to keep moving forward in an environment where the expansion of e-commerce, the growing need for on-demand services and the constant search for real-time visibility, coupled with high levels of corporate social responsibility, are paramount. In these circumstances we need to be even more agile in order to provide our customers with adapted and innovative solutions."
With a direct presence in 67 countries and a global network that extends across more than 120 countries, GEODIS covers the entire supply chain through its five business lines: express courier and last mile delivery; full-truckload road transport; contract logistics; freight forwarding and supply chain optimization. This range of services allows GEODIS to provide its customers with comprehensive solutions enabled by its 41,000 employees, physical infrastructure, processes and information systems.
