Alcoa Announces Winners Of 2012 Core Carrier Awards

Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced the winners of its 2012 North America Core Carrier Awards Program.

Commenting on the program, Tim Reyes, President of Alcoa Materials Management, said, “The core carrier awards represent a successful partnership that has been developed with our top transportation providers in North America. The carriers we are recognizing have best met the criteria established to insure the needs of Alcoa facilities.”

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.”

United Parcel Service won the Alcoa Advantage in Transportation Award. The award recognizes a carrier who leverages resources beyond traditional transportation industry boundaries to deliver significant benefits to Alcoa.

For the second consecutive year, Hapag-Lloyd of Hamburg, Germany captured Alcoa’s ocean carrier of the year award for best-in-class export and import container service for North America. All of Alcoa’s core ocean carriers received recognition plaques for their service during 2012.
