Southeastern Freight Lines, a regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider, has been named 2009 Carrier of the Year by Masco Corp., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of home improvement and building products. This is the fourth time that Masco has tapped Southeastern for the award.
Each year, Masco gives the Carrier of the Year award to an LTL partner that earns the highest score based on survey results from Masco’s operating companies. Survey criteria include billing accuracy, claims processing, delivery reliability, local terminal support, sales effort, transit times and website capabilities.
“Southeastern appreciates this award from Masco Corporation, one of our larger, long-time clients,” says Terrell Hixon, national account manager for Lexington, S.C.-based Southeastern. “The credit goes to our associates and their keen attention to detail.”
