A. Duie Pyle received the “2011 Menlo Worldwide Logistics Package Carrier Safety Award” for excellence in the safe transport of products for The Dow Chemical Co. The award recognizes A. Duie Pyle, among eligible carriers in Dow’s North American Road Package sector, for performing at the highest levels of service performance and safety compliance.
“A. Duie Pyle is within the core group of carriers who transport 80 percent of Dow’s freight nationally, which is a distinction,” said Tom Walker, A. Duie Pyle’s director of chemical markets and compliance. “As the only Northeast Regional LTL Responsible Care carrier, we handle a lot of volume, and we appreciate the recognition for our company’s investment in safety.”
Presented by Menlo Worldwide Logistics, the award is based on the global criteria set forth by Dow. Top safety carriers must achieve both zero serious and moderate incidents, and incur no more than one minor incident over the course of the year. Carriers who qualify also must be in good standing in the four key areas of safety reporting, on-time performance, EDI compliance and emergency response.
Pyle’s partner carrier, Southeastern Freight Lines, also was recognized.
