07/19/2004 - GTI was awarded the "New Carrier of the Year Award" by SC Johnson. We're extremely proud of this achievement as SC Johnson is one of the premier shippers in the country with a core carrier group of less than 15 carriers. It's an exclusive club of which we're glad to be a member, and further recognized by the outstanding achievements of all our hard working associates.
SC Johnson is a family owned maker of familiar consumer brands, including Ziploc bags, Windex window cleaner, Pledge furniture polish, Raid insect spray and Glade air fresheners to name just a few. While there's been a tremendous effort on everyone's part to be successful here, I'd like to mention a few special contributors:
Laurie Murphy-without her sales tenacity we would never have received this opportunity.
Laurie Miller - outstanding customer service support, recognized by SC Johnson repeatedly as one of best with whom they work.
Jim Dingman and Chad Samsell - a great job endearing us to the local facilities
Mary Inglin, Jeff Smith, Dave Conner and Sean Bolan - consistently they do an outstanding job getting the loads prioritized and pulled out of the SCJ facilities in a truck deficit market
Andy Feazell - carries the message throughout the system that these loads can't miss for delivery.
