Supply Chain Stands Out as “Shipper of Choice”

July 16, 2019

A standard has been set, and it starts with Supply Chain. FreightWaves, a supply chain trade news leader, announced The Home Depot as one of the winners of its first-ever Shipper of Choice award. This recognition showcases Supply Chain as the integral reason behind carriers and drivers preferring to work with The Home Depot.

“We recognize carriers, and often drivers, have a choice as to which customers they serve, and we want them to choose Home Depot. This award is terrific recognition of our Supply Chain and Store associates’ efforts to create a positive environment for every driver,” says Vice President of Transportation Michelle Livingstone.

Carrier members of the Truckload Carriers Association, along with members of the Blockchain in Transport Alliance, voted on the winners. The Home Depot stood out for its efforts to provide the most streamlined and efficient transportation experience for drivers and carriers.

In addition to “Shipper of Choice,” Home Depot’s Supply Chain also recently made the rankings of Gartner’s 2019 Supply Chain Top 25. Gartner noted “strong customer-centric culture” and same-day/next-day capabilities as key factors in The Home Depot’s continued success.
