At last week’s annual conference in Nashville, TN, Landstar Global Logistics named Seaboard Marine as its “Ocean Carrier of the Year” for 2006.

In making the selection, Landstar Global Logistics surveyed its independent agents who handle intermodal shipments. Criteria included on-time performance, equipment availability and condition, sales representation, technology support, and customer responsiveness.

Seaboard’s Mercy Lopez, who was on-hand to receive the distinguished award, said, “We are extremely pleased to have built a relationship with Landstar. They are one of the most innovative logistics organizations in our industry. Their approach to market development is targeted towards constantly finding cost-effective solutions. Seaboard is so proud to be recognized by a valued partner.”

Seaboard is the second recipient of Landstar Global Logistic’s “Ocean Carrier of the Year” award. CMA-CGM (America) Inc. received the award for 2005.
