Ashland Distribution Co and Ashland Specialty Chemical Co presented Carrier Excellence Awards for 2000 to A Duie Pyle Inc, West Chester PA; Liquid Transport Corporation, Greenfield IN; and USF Holland, Holland MI.
The three companies were selected from among the less-than-truckload and liquid bulk carriers serving Ashland Distribution and Ashland Specialty Chemical during the past year. The Ashland Carrier Excellence Award is presented annually to carriers that exceed the Ashland target in each of six different performance measurement areas: error-free shipments, refusal rate, safety performance, claims performance, freight bill rating accuracy, and an overall evaluation of the carriers by Ashland Distribution's and Ashland Specialty Chemical's shipping facilities.
"We are pleased to recognize these companies for their outstanding performance and service to us, and we look forward to a continued successful partnership with them." said Tom King, vice-president of purchasing and logistics, Ashland Distribution and Ashland Specialty Chemical.
