For the fifth time in as many years, Toyota Logistics Services named BNSF Railway Co. (BNSF) the winner of its 2018 President’s Award for Rail Logistics Excellence.

The award “is given to service partners who demonstrate combined excellence in quality, customer service, continuous improvement and on-time performance.” In 2018, BNSF handled more than 560,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles throughout the United States and Canada, the freight transportation company said.

“Our goal is always the safe and reliable transportation of freight, including finished vehicles. Earning this recognition from Toyota for the fifth consecutive year shows our dedication to move our automotive customers’ products efficiently and without damage,” said Dave Fleenor, AVP, Automotive Marketing, BNSF.

“Receiving the President’s Award highlights our commitment to providing best-in-class service and the most dependable automotive supply chain possible,” Fleenor added.
