UP procures second GM performance award


Union Pacific Railroad April 29 was named General Motors Corp.'s 2001 Supplier of the Year — the first railroad to win one of the automaker's top supplier awards.
Winners are chosen by a GM team comprising executives from purchasing, engineering, manufacturing and logistics, who base decisions on suppliers' quality, service, technology and price. The company this year is honoring 91 suppliers from 18 countries.
"It's gratifying to our employees to be recognized once again by General Motors for the hard work they do in providing value, service and technology solutions in an effort to meet GM's transportation needs," said UP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dick Davidson in a prepared statement.
UP in January also won GM's 2001 Mark of Excellence Award based on service performance and technology use.
The railroad in July 2001 obtained from GM a multi-year contract, under which UP moves all the automaker's finished vehicles in the West.
