"We are devoted to providing customers unparalleled service, and this recognition highlights that commitment," said Linda Brandl, Union Pacific vice president and general manager-Automotive. "Our industry-leading franchise that includes an extensive network, facilities and equipment is positioned to create customer value and continued success."

Union Pacific was one of only 83 suppliers recognized by GM who have consistently exceeded GM's expectations by being innovative, delivering quality products and services on time and by creating outstanding value. This is the eighth time Union Pacific has received the Supplier of the Year award.

"Union Pacific helped play a critical role in GM's success in 2012 through its dedication and commitment to consistently exceed our expectations by being innovative, delivering high quality products and services on time and by creating outstanding value," said Grace Lieblein, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "We are thrilled to recognize Union Pacific, who we consider to be a world-class supplier."

The Supplier of the Year award is given to less than 1 percent of GM's approximately 18,500 suppliers around the world. The winners are recognized for delivering innovative technology, superior quality, timely crisis management and competitive, total-enterprise cost solutions.

The Supplier of the Year winners are chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives.
