Twelve logistics companies have been recognised in General Motors’ Supplier of the Year awards for 2010, held recently at the GM Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan.
The award, now in its 19th year, recognises the significant contributions of GM’s suppliers in 2010 as part of the company’s global product and performance achievements in the four key areas of Innovative technology, Superior quality, Outstanding launch support and Competitive total enterprise cost solutions.
“We believe the Supplier of the Year Award is a top honour in the industry,” said Bob Socia, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “These suppliers are a critical part of our effort to design, build and sell the world’s best vehicles.”
Julie Krehbiel, vice president and general manager of Union Pacific, which was the only rail provider to receive an award, said the recognition was down to a dedicated team effort. “Our goal is to continue to provide value to General Motors by providing safe and reliable service while developing innovative freight transportation solutions,” she added.
