Lowe’s Companies, Inc. awarded NFI as the Outbound Carrier of the Year and a Double Platinum Carrier for 2013.
Each year Lowe’s acknowledges supply chain excellence among its distribution and transportation providers. In recognition of “outstanding dedication, commitment, and support,” NFI obtained the title of Outboard Carrier of the Year for all of Lowe’s operations. On-time performance, ease of doing business, and a commitment to innovation, including the launch of a natural gas-powered fleet with Lowe’s at its regional distribution center in Mount Vernon, Texas, all factored into the recognition.
For the third consecutive year, Lowe’s has also recognized NFI as a Double Platinum Carrier. The Double Platinum Carrier award is given to providers who consistently deliver the highest quality of service.
