OAK BROOK, Ill., April 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hub Group (NASDAQ: HUBG) announced today that it has received the Intermodal Carrier of the Year and the Platinum Service Award honors from Lowe's Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW) for the fifth and sixth year in a row, respectively. A FORTUNE® 50 home improvement company, Lowe's serves approximately 16 million customers a week in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
"It's hard to express how proud we are to have such an outstanding relationship with a distinguished organization like Lowe's," said David P. Yeager, Chairman and CEO of Hub Group. "We are again humbled to be recognized for our service and expertise, and more determined than ever to keep the streak going in 2017 and beyond."
To attain Lowe's Platinum Service Award, the highest service award Lowe's presents to its transportation providers, companies must achieve a total score of at least 99 percent on a combination of three weighted criteria: on-time percentage, EDI compliance and load acceptance. Hub Group was the only intermodal carrier honored in 2016. While noteworthy, Hub Group's accomplishment was far from unique, as Lowe's has named Hub Group a Platinum Service Award winner every year that the company has been eligible.
In addition to company honors, industry professionals from more than 100 carriers in attendance at the Lowe's awards ceremony competed for four Outstanding Customer Service Awards. Hub Group's Account Manager Andrew Greenaway was named a winner for the second year in a row, becoming the only person to receive this prestigious award twice.
