Southeastern Freight Lines, a provider of less-than-truckload transportation services, was honored as a premier supplier by diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corp. as part of the company’s supplier recognition program. Southeastern, the only transportation company to win a Premier Supplier award this year, received recognition from Eaton in the logistics supplier category based on quality, productivity, cost reduction, innovation and technological advances.
Eaton’s logistics suppliers handle the transportation of goods inbound from the supplier and outbound to customers, as well as indirect package transportation. “Our innovative technologies help customers manage power more efficiently, effectively and safely,” says Craig Reed, senior vice president of supply chain management for Eaton. “Top-notch suppliers, like those recognized through this awards program, help us ensure we are meeting our commitments to our customers.”
Eaton says it chose Southeastern as an award recipient due to its exceptional quality and on-time performance. “At Southeastern, each employee is involved in measuring every aspect of our business so we can satisfy our customers completely,” says Tommy Keeton, national account manager at Southeastern Freight Lines, based in Lexington, S.C. “Eaton has been a customer for nearly 20 years, and we are pleased that they are satisfied with our performance.”
