Magellan Transport Logistics was represented with Owner/CEO Tom and Patty Piatak in attendance as a logistics supplier for the L-Brands Supplier Diversity Conference in Columbus Ohio, May 2015. Round tables discussions were conducted post corporate presentations.
L- Brands, which includes The Limited Brand, Victoria Secret, Bath and Body Works, Henri Bendel and La Senza strongly support diverse suppliers. Citing website, “ Building and nurturing a strong commitment to the communities where we live and work has always been important to L Brands. Partnering with diverse businesses is important to our success and to our role as a leader in the retail industry. The supplier diversity initiative enables L Brands to have access to the best vendors in each sourcing category. Thus, we seek relationships with suppliers that mirror our values by ensuring diversity in their supply base. The mutually beneficial business will broaden the economic vitality and prosperity of the communities we serve, create value for our shareholders and provide fresh perspective and innovative solutions to our business.”
