Toyota honors BNSF for logistics excellence


BNSF Railway Co. recently received the 2014 President's Award for Logistics Excellence from Toyota Logistics Services, the automaker's highest supplier honor.

The award is given to service partners that demonstrate combined excellence in quality, customer service and on-time performance, according to a BNSF press release. Toyota praised the Class I for using transparency and proactive communications to its customers.

In 2014, BNSF handled nearly 400,000 Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles in the United States and Canada. The railroad delivered 99.84 percent of Toyota vehicles damage-free through quality processes at automotive facilities and BNSF train-handling procedures, BNSF officials said.

BNSF Assistant Vice President for Automotive Marketing Dave Fleenor said the company is honored to receive Toyota's "highly coveted" award.

"We place a high priority on ensuring every vehicle reaches its destination on-time and damage-free, and the President’s Award is an affirmation of how hard our employees work to provide exceptional service to our automotive customers," said Fleenor.
