Celadon Group, Inc.’s (NYSE: CGI) Celadon Trucking Services today announced that it was awarded by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

"When Walmart chooses a carrier partnership, we look for companies who provide outstanding service, effective communication and for a company that will exemplify Walmart’s mission to 'Save people money so they can live better,'" Kevin X. Jones, Walmart Vice President of Inbound Transportation said in a letter of commendation. “Walmart is fortunate to have worked with many companies that have accomplished this task; however Walmart acknowledges that Celadon has exceeded our expectations.”

"It is always an honor to be recognized by one of our customers – big or small – for the service we provide,” stated Celadon President and CEO, Paul Will. “Having won the Rising Star award in 2006, the Diamond Carrier of the Year award in 2009, and Platinum Carrier of the Year in 2011, our team is keenly aware of the Walmart service expectations. This award demonstrates again that our team accepted the challenge of continuing to service the Walmart business at the highest level possible each and every day.”

Each year, Walmart honors 13 carriers for exemplary performance from among the more than 400 transportation suppliers delivering to Walmart distribution centers.
