Landair Transport recently was honored at the annual meeting of FedEx Core Carriers. Receiving one of the top honors FedEx presents to its carriers, Landair’s FedEx fleet was presented a Gold Award in recognition of its “Outstanding Performance in Maintaining a Service Level of 99.56 percent.”

Each year, FedEx gives out bronze, silver, gold and platinum awards based on carriers’ service level. This is the second year in a row that this Landair fleet has received a Gold Award. This year’s award was based on performance for all departing and arriving FedEx loads from June 1, 2006, to May 31, 2007.

John Tweed, president of Greeneville, Tenn.-based Landair, personally commended every individual involved with the expedited division, led by Lee McKinney, dedicated operations manger. “I am happy to see them get some well-deserved recognition for their hard work and dedication to service excellence,” Tweed says. “Exceeding expectation on a daily basis, 365 days a year, can be a challenging standard to maintain, but Lee and his group consistently rise to meet that challenge and deserve to be rewarded. Great job, guys, on a job very well done.”
