PRLog - May 21, 2014 - TORONTO -- Coca-Cola® presented the first ever Canadian Carrier of the Year award to Canada Cartage – the country’s largest dedicated fleet provider, at their Carrier Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. This year marks the first time Canadian carriers were invited to the corporate conference, and included in consideration for the national award.
Canadian Carrier of the Year Award 2014
The Canadian Carrier of the Year award is presented to the carrier that scores the highest in a series of evaluations and criteria. Winners in each category are determined through the submission of independent scores from Coca-Cola business owners, procurement, and field teams across Canada.
“Canada Cartage achieved high scores in each of the major categories,”
Other criteria included scores out of 10 for on-time percentage, tender acceptance, cost efficiency and customer service. With such a large dedicated fleet and attention to on-time delivery, Mario says Canada Cartage scored very well among evaluators, “Canada Cartage had an on-time delivery record of 100%, which had a large impact on their customer service ranking.”
Tim Evans, Senior Director, Business Development at Canada Cartage accepted the award in person, and says the company is honoured to be the first Canadian company to receive this distinction from Coca-Cola. “We hold ourselves to very high service standards and this award reinforces the fact that we are achieving our goals by delivering exceptional service to our customer.”
