Ed Hamorsky, Director of Logistics and Transportation added, “This program continues to drive more intimate business alignment and trust between Alcoa and the core carriers that serve our plants. We continue to put a lot of focus on deploying effective sourcing and execution strategies to reduce our transportation spend. Many of the successes we have realized the past few years are linked to creative solutions offered by our core carriers.”
