We are excited to formally announce that Knichel Logistics is officially a certified Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB). This certification was granted via the Women's Business Enterprise National Council on behalf of the Small Business Administration.
In addition to the WOSB certification, Knichel Logistics is also a certified Women's Business Enterprise.
What this means for Knichel Logistics is that we are now eligible to participate in contracting opportunities with federal and state governments that set aside specific goals for awarding to WOSBs. The certification alone was a fairly long and rigorous process, but well worth the time and effort to be considered under the SBA's WOSB Federal Contracting Program. We are pleased to expand our repertoire to include federal contracting capabilities. As Pittsburgh's only woman owned 3PL, we can offer supply chain solutions to the largest of customers.
A lot of acrononyms get thrown around when it comes to these certifications, so I'll break them down for the sake of all readers because it gets confusing!
- WOSB = Women-Owned Small Business
- SBA = Small Business Administration
- WBE = Women's Business Enterprise
- WBENC = Women's Business Enterprise National Council
