BNSF Railway Company was recently honoured by Honda for excellence in transportation. American Honda Motor Co., Inc. President and CEO Toshiaki Mikoshiba presented the company’s annual Premier Partner Awards to 15 suppliers that demonstrate excellence in quality, value and customer service.
BNSF was recognised for efficient and reliable railway transport of finished vehicles.
“The Premier Partner Award winners exemplify Honda’s philosophy of meeting and exceeding customer expectations,” said Charles Harmon, senior manager, Administration Division, American Honda. “They provide Honda with exceptional service each and every day, and we thank them for their continued commitment to our business.”
