New among transportation companies on the list of the top 50 Best Managed Winners list for 2009 were Kemptville Truck Centres, SIRIUS Satellite Radio Canada, United Van Lines, and Wakefield Canada.
In addition to the top 50, Platinum Club status is given in recognition of those companies who have sustained a “standard of excellence and leadership in all areas of their business practices,” and have qualified in the award program for at least six consecutive years.
Platinum Club Members in the transportation sector include: Armour Transportation Systems, Bison Transport, Challenger Motor Freight, Fountain Tire, Kriska Holdings, MacKinnon Transport, M-O Freightworks, MSM Transportation, Quik X Transportation, Wheels Group, and Yanke Group of Companies.
In addition to Platinum Club members, Canadian companies can also make the requalified list for the Best Managed designation by successfully meeting stringent operational and financial review requirements.
Requalified members from the transportation industry for 2009 include: ASL Distribution Services, Cummins Western Canada, Day & Ross Transportation Group, and TransX Group of Companies.
“In tougher economic times, great management shines,” said John Hughes, national leader of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies, in an article in the National Post. “One of the most impressive aspects of this year’s Best Managed companies was the commitment by management teams and employees to work in concert to develop innovative ways of tackling strategic issues in the face of a reset world.”
The Platinum Club and 50 Best Managed Companies awards are sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, Queen’s School of Business, and the National Post.
