Eden Prairie, MN (June 6, 2013) — C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. was awarded the Truckload/IMC Carrier of the Year by Sharp Electronics Corporation, a company known for its unique one-of-a-kind electronic products and solutions, at Sharp’s annual carrier conference.
The award is data-centric and based upon quantitative data of four key performance factors: on-time pickup and delivery, EDI transactions, load acceptance and invoice accuracy. To be eligible for the Carrier of the Year award, an organization must achieve an overall top score in their performance metrics as well as be recognized for exemplifying true partnership through project initiations and results achieved.
“These qualities exemplify the collaboration Sharp Electronics is looking for when engaging transportation providers and seeking opportunities to become more efficient,” said Mark Stephens, senior manager of transportation and logistics analysis at Sharp Electronics Corporation.
C.H. Robinson, one of the world’s largest logistics companies, distinguished themselves by exhausting all options and coming up with solutions when needed, even going so far as to work closely with Sharp Electronics asset-based carriers and helping them find loads to get back to Sharp locations.
“This award acknowledges the collaboration and growth between Sharp and C.H. Robinson,” said Jeremy Schlachet, senior sales representative at C.H. Robinson. “This achievement couldn’t have been realized without the tremendous support of the entire team at Sharp.”
