Tellier takes Logistics Executive of the Year honors


National Industrial Transportation League and Logistics Management & Distribution Report magazine Nov. 13 named Canadian National Railway Co. President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Tellier Logistics Executive of the Year.

Tellier at a TransComp 2001 Awards function received the organizations' McCullough Award, which recognizes an individual who demonstrates a record of outstanding logistics industry achievement and leadership.

"For quite some time, the thing I've heard about Paul Tellier is that he doesn't think like the typical railroader, he thinks like the typical business person," said NITL President Edward Emmett, according to a prepared statement.

Tellier stressed that CN strives to be different from other railroads, and is constantly seeking ways to improve customer service.

"We're not afraid to change ourselves if it means better performance," he said. "And we're not afraid to make a commitment and stand by it — whether it's scheduled delivery, a Customer Bill of Rights, or a promise to keep all gateways open following our mergers with [Illinois Central Railroad and Wisconsin Central Transportation Corp.]."
