C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., one of the world’s largest third party logistics companies, has been named Anheuser-Busch’s 2011 non-asset based carrier of the year. The award, given in appreciation for outstanding commitment and service to Anheuser-Busch, is based on eight objective metrics including on-time pickup, trailer pool compliance, a provider’s ease of doing business and responsiveness, among others.
Anheuser-Busch said the Eden Prairie, Minn.-based C.H. Robinson provided substantial support with both dry and refrigerated capacity during the spring and summer selling season at multiple brewery locations in 2011. In addition, C.H. Robinson was also lauded as being the first over-the-road provider to offer onsite support and collaborate on process improvements and performance at the St. Louis-based brewer’s Business Service Center.
“Our mission is to provide exceptional value to our customers and suppliers, so it is an honor to be recognized in this way by Anheuser-Busch,” said Tim Manning, VP at C.H. Robinson. “Our network of offices that work on this account provide the local knowledge needed to properly execute the business while performing as one cohesive operation.”
