ATS was recently awarded the first-ever “Difference Maker” award by FedEx Ground at the 2017 FedEx Ground Carrier Conference in Coraopolis, PA.
Carriers were measured on their level of service, growth, collaboration and dedication to their partnership throughout the past year. ATS utilized their leading North American Dry Van Service to successfully haul freight for FedEx during the industry’s peak season.
“Our ability to provide innovative solutions to flex and meet peak volume demands, which require both dynamic and expedited service capabilities, makes us a value-added transportation and supply chain partner. The entire ATS family would like to thank FedEx Ground for this honor and we look forward to growing together.” said Roderick Hedner, Director of Sales and Marketing of ATS, Inc.
ATS was compared against a field of well-known carriers in being selected for the award. The Difference Maker recognition was based on the following criteria:
- The carrier’s ability to provide FedEx Ground and their customers with surge capacity
- The carrier’s ability to develop turnkey solutions to last minute changes
- Level of Service (LOS) metrics around on-time-pickup and on-time-delivery
“Sincere appreciation for this award goes to the ATS Drivers, Customer Service, Operations and Administrative teams for their continued excellence. The way these teams in collaboration demonstrate ATS’ values-based approach is one of the primary reasons ATS is being honored with this inaugural award,” said Jeff Potthoff, Senior Vice President and General Manager of ATS, Inc.
