At last week’s annual conference in Nashville, TN, Landstar Global Logistics once again named Seaboard Marine as its “Ocean Carrier of the Year” for 2007.
The criteria for selection focused on customer and account service support. Landstar surveyed its independent agents who handle intermodal shipments regarding on-time performance, equipment availability and condition, technology support, sales representation and customer responsiveness of dozens of shipping lines.
Receiving the award from Landstar’s President Jim Handoush was Seaboard’s Mercy Lopez who said, “We are extremely honored to have received this award for two consecutive years. We have built a strong relationship with Landstar, an innovative industry leader, that is based upon finding cost-effective solutions for our respective customers. We are very proud to once again be recognized by Landstar as a valued partner.”
Having also won the award as the top ocean carrier in 2006, Seaboard is the second recipient as CMA-CGM (Americas) Inc. received the initial award in 2005.
