Werner Enterprises announced that it has been recognized by Home Depot as the Inbound Carrier of the Year for 2011. Werner Enterprises says it was given the award because of its ability to meet and exceed Home Depot’s additional capacity requests, overall performance expectations through the year, and the high level of support the Omaha, Neb.-based company offered Home Depot during Hurricane Irene. Werner Enterprises was one of six carriers out of a carrier base of more than 100 to receive an award.
“Being recognized by Home Depot as their Inbound Carrier of the Year is a great honor,” says Derek Leathers, Werner president and chief operating officer. “This award demonstrates that our continued investment in technologies and assets has established a strong portfolio of services for our customers. We plan to continue that high level of trust and dedication with all of our customers.”
