XPO Logistics Inc., a provider of nonasset-based third-party logistics, has been recognized by Whirlpool Corp. for the quality of the expedited services provided by its Express-1 Inc. business unit. Express-1 was named Special Services Supplier of the Year at Whirlpool’s recent 2011 Supply Chain Meeting in St. Joseph, Mich.
“We are honored to be recognized for excellence by one of the largest shippers in North America,” says Jeff Curry, president of Express-1. “Strong customer relationships are vitally important in this business. Our intense commitment to Whirlpool is a reflection of the value we place on this partnership.”
A second XPO Logistics business unit, Bounce Logistics Inc., was recognized at the same event for its participation in the Habitat for Humanity Gifts in Kind program. Bounce Logistics provides Whirlpool with premium truckload brokerage services.
“We value partners who are known for and display operational excellence in everything they do,” says Kevin O’Meara, senior director of logistics for Whirlpool Corp. “This clearly defines Express-1.”
