Horizon Lines is the only Jones Act ocean carrier to receive a 2011 award from Lowe’s for domestic ocean transportation service. The 2011 award marks the sixth consecutive year that Horizon Lines has received Lowe’s Platinum Carrier Award, and the 11th consecutive year that Horizon Lines has been honored with a Lowe’s award for providing consistently superior service.
“Horizon Lines is honored to again receive Lowe’s highest recognition for domestic ocean service transportation providers,” said Brian Taylor, executive vice president and chief operating officer.
Each year, beginning with 2001, Horizon Lines has earned either the Lowe’s Outstanding Ocean Service Provider Award or the Platinum Award in the U.S. domestic ocean trades to Alaska and Hawaii. Lowe’s first awarded its highest transportation honor, the Platinum Carrier Award, to Horizon Lines in 2006, and Horizon has earned that honor every year since then.
