GEODIS recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s June 2020 Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics, Worldwide (1)

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.”
