BNSF receives Toyota President's Award for rail logistics


BNSF Railway Co. has been awarded the 2017 President's Award for Rail Logistics Excellence by Toyota Logistics Services, the Class I announced yesterday.

This is the fourth consecutive year that BNSF has received the award, which is Toyota's highest supplier honor. It is given to service partners that demonstrate combined excellence in quality, customer service, kaizen (continuous improvement) and on-time performance.

The Class I also received Toyota Logistics Services' Logistics Excellence Awards for kaizen and customer service.

"This award acknowledges our commitment to move our automotive customers' product efficiently and in factory-fresh condition," said Dave Fleenor, BNSF assistant vice president for automotive marketing, in a press release. "We will continue to work to provide best-in-class service and the most reliable automotive supply chain possible."

Last year, BNSF handled more than 530,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles throughout the United States and Canada.
