Matson Wins Logistics Award

By Karen Robes Meeks

Voted the No. 1 Ocean Carrier in three of the last five years, Matson Navigation Co. recently won a Quest for Quality gold award given by Logistics Management magazine and Peerless Research Group.

The award is based on an annual survey on excellence in performance and customer satisfaction. In the Intermodal Marketing category, Matson scored the highest in each of the five rating criteria which include: on-time performance, value, information technology, customer service, and equipment and operations.

"The domestic transportation industry has been on a roller coaster this year, especially with dynamic volumes and difficult capacity conditions," said Rusty Rolfe, Matson Logistics president. "We are humbled to be named the top rail intermodal provider and recognized for meeting these industry challenges head-on while delivering on our customer commitments."

The awards will be presented on October 2 during the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
