Toyota honors BNSF for rail logistics excellence


BNSF Railway Co. has received the 2018 President's Award for Rail Logistics Excellence from Toyota Logistics Services for the fifth consecutive year.

The award is Toyota's highest supplier honor to recognize service partners that demonstrate excellence in quality, customer service, continuous improvement and on-time performance.

"Our goal is always the safe and reliable transportation of freight, including finished vehicles," said Dave Fleenor, BNSF's assistant vice president of automotive marketing, in a press release. "Earning this recognition from Toyota for the fifth consecutive year shows our dedication to move our automotive customers’ products efficiently and without damage."

Last year, BNSF handled more than 560,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles throughout the United States and Canada. BNSF also received Toyota Logistics Services’ Logistics Excellence Awards for kaizen (continuous improvement) and for customer service.
