Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc. has been named the 2013 Intermodal Carrier of the Year by Continental Mills in recognition of its outstanding customer service and operational excellence.

This is the second year in a row that Yusen Logistics has received this prestigious award. In honor of this achievement, Continental Mills has made a $1,000 charitable donation given in Yusen Logistics’ name to World Vision, a humanitarian organization that helps children, families and communities reach their full potential by tackling causes of poverty and injustice.

Yusen Logistics has been providing intermodal service for Continental Mills for more than five years, coordinating rail and truck movements between Chicago and Seattle. For its annual Carrier Awards program, Continental Mills evaluated service providers on key performance indicators, including on-time pick up, on-time delivery and tender acceptance ratio. Yusen Logistics is a top performer in these areas, and continues to work with Continental Mills on process improvements.

“We are very pleased and excited to receive this award for the second year in a row,” says Mark D. Terrell, Manager of Business Development, Yusen Logistics. “Having a great partner such as Continental Mills allows us to provide the world class service our customers have come to expect from us.”
