Third-party logistics company C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc. received Anheuser-Busch’s award as non-asset-based carrier of the year in appreciation for outstanding commitment and service to Anheuser-Busch, said the company. The award is based on eight objective metrics including on-time pickup, trailer pool compliance and SmartWay® requirements. In addition, a provider’s ease of doing business and responsiveness were a couple of the subjective metrics taken into account.
Anheuser-Busch said C.H. Robinson provided substantial support with both dry and refrigerated capacity during the spring and summer selling season at multiple brewery locations in 2011. In addition, C.H. Robinson was the first over-the-road provider to offer onsite support and collaborate on process improvements and performance at Anheuser-Busch’s Business Service Center operation in St. Louis.
“Our mission is to provide exceptional value to our customers and suppliers, so it is an honor to be recognized in this way by Anheuser-Busch,” said Tim Manning, vice president at C.H. Robinson. “Our network of offices that work on this account provide the local knowledge needed to properly execute the business while performing as one cohesive operation.”
