Southeastern Freight Lines, a provider of regional less-than-truckload services, has been named Lowe’s Platinum Carrier of the Year – the highest award designation possible for the home improvement retailer. This is the fourth consecutive year that Southeastern has earned the Platinum distinction by achieving all four goals set by Lowe’s.
Lowe’s measures carriers each week on meeting four primary objectives, including on-time and claim-free deliveries – two of Southeastern’s primary operational objectives. Consistently exceeding all four standards earns the Platinum level recognition.
“We appreciate this honor from Lowe’s and value the outstanding relationship we have developed over the years,” says Braxton Vick, senior vice president of corporate planning and development at Southeastern Freight Lines. “We absolutely welcome and thrive on being measured by our customers. Meeting Lowe’s standards for four straight years is a testament to the commitment our employees have in the quality improvement process.”
