Lowe's Honors TMC For Excellence in Service
TMC Transportation, the leader in flatbed transportation, has been recognized by home improvement retailer Lowe’s Companies Inc., with the Platinum Carrier Award for consistently providing Lowe’s with a high level of delivered service in 2015.
This is the first time TMC has reached Lowe’s’ Platinum level distinction. For the past six years, TMC has consistently been recognized as a Gold level carrier, making this year’s award especially honorable. In addition, TMC was also named Lowe’s Flatbed Carrier of the Year for 2015, marking another first for the company.
The awards were presented at Lowe’s annual carrier meeting on March 6-7 in Hickory, NC. Mike Kelly, Vice President of National Accounts was in attendance and accepted them on TMC’s behalf.
“TMC was able to reach a new high with Lowe’s for the year 2015. Previously we had been awarded their Gold level of performance on a yearly basis, but this year our group, led by Eric Fish and Curt Blunk, elevated our game,” says Kelly. “As a result, we reached Platinum level, which rewards upwards of 99.7% performance. They are a Fortune® 50 company and it is an honor to work for them.”

TMC and Lowe’s have maintained a great partnership for many years, but enhanced communication efforts in the recent months have shown increased success for both parties. “We’ve continued to build on-site relationships, and that translates into heightened efficiency,” explains Eric Fish, Vice President of Dedicated Operations for TMC. “This also enhances Lowe’s’ trust in TMC that we will follow through with our commitment for each delivery.”
