KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Once again, Remorquage St-Michel, Inc. topped the list of Canadian carriers that serve metal engineering and manufacturer Alcoa.
The St-Michel, Que.-baseed company won recognition as Alcoa’s Canadian Tier 1 carrier of the year. The victory is the seventh straight for Remorquage St-Michel. The announcement was made at the Aloca 2013 North America Core Carrier Awards ceremony, which was held in Knoxville, Tenn.
“We have a passion to recognize and reward our top carriers who are vital components of our supply chain,” said Ed Hamorsky, Alcoa’s director of global transportation and logistics. “This program continues to drive alignment and trust between Alcoa and the core carriers that serve our plants. Many of the cost reduction and sourcing successes that Alcoa has realized over the past few years have been the result of creative solutions offered by our core carriers.”
In their ninth year, the awards are based on seven key metrics including overall volume, shipment acceptance percentage, scope and sustainability, and data accuracy. To be eligible, carriers must be under Alcoa contract and meet volume minimums for at least three months of the year.
Other winners included:
- leading intermodal distribution company—CMI Freight-Trans, of Chicago, Ill.
- flatbed service category— TMC Transportation, Des Moines, Iowa
- dry van service— USA Truck, of Van Buren, Ark.
Along with Remorquage St-Michel, Alcoa uses four other Quebec-based Tier 1 carriers: Dubois Transport of Napierville, JCG Transport, in Trois-Rivieres, Transnat Express Inc. of Plessisville, QC and Transport Robert in Boucherville.
