GlobalTranz – a logistics management firm specializing in carrier, supply chain and warehouse management – has named Reddaway, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc., its 2009 Regional Carrier of the Year. The company also honored Con-way Freight as its National LTL Carrier of the Year.
Founded in 2003, GlobalTranz (www.globaltranz.com) is a provider of supply chain management technology, available at www.carrierrate.com, which optimizes the flow and storage of merchandise as goods and materials move within the supply chain. To determine rankings, GlobalTranz agents and representatives nationwide rated its suppliers based on six key criteria: on-time pickup, on-time delivery, driver courtesy, claims and damages, billing accuracy and customer service.
This is the second time this quarter that Reddaway has received an award for exceptional performance and quality. In April, the company was honored for its outstanding safety record at the California Trucking Association.
”An award of this caliber is the highest compliment,” says T.J. O’Connor, president of Reddaway, based in Overland Park, Kan. “GlobalTranz is a valued partner, and this honor is a direct reflection of our continued commitment to exceptional customer service each and every day.”
This is the first award for Con-way Freight since GlobalTranz began recognizing carriers five years ago. Con-way Freight has served as a core carrier for GlobalTranz since 2008, handling the company’s needs for regional and national LTL service.
“It’s gratifying to know that Con-way Freight is delivering on its promise of exception-free delivery, on-time service performance and faster transit times for GlobalTranz,” says John G. Labrie, president of Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Con-way Freight. “Every employee who works with GlobalTranz, from our drivers to our customer service representatives and our sales and operations teams, should be proud of this honor, which was earned through their dedication and commitment to excellence. We thank GlobalTranz for this honor and look forward to contributing to their goals.”
