Plastics Group of America Honors JB Hunt Transport

Company Wins TPG’s Prestigious “Carrier of Year” Award

(Woonsocket, Rhode Island – February 8, 2016) – Bob Lebeaux, president at The Plastics Group of America (TPG), announced today that the company has awarded its “Carrier of the Year” award for 2015-2016 to JB Hunt Transport.

Each year, TPG designates one of its shipping vendors as its carrier of the year based upon the quality of service it provides to the company. Metrics include timeliness of deliveries, responsiveness to company inquiries, and overall attention to detail. This past year, JB Hunt Transport went “above and beyond” by providing TPG with detailed diagrams on how to load its trucks. Along with optimizing weight allowances for each load, it also created a safer environment inside the truck for those both loading and off-loading materials. Offering these beneficial specs, in combination with achieving and maintaining an exceptional on-time pick-up and delivery record, made this an easy choice. As Bob noted, “they were always quick to address any issues that we might have had – providing us with immediate answers and solving problems before they ever escalated into situations that ultimately impacted our ability to make a delivery to our customer. They are a valued business partner and we appreciate the top-notch customer service they provide.”

Andrea Turchetti, JB Hunt Transport’s New England Branch Manager, added “When a customer is able to view you as a partner, the relationship will always flourish. Working with Bob Lebeaux and his team at The Plastics Group is a pleasure for our group at JB Hunt Transport. We work hard to ensure their business is well taken care of. In return, we are treated fairly, and with respect, allowing us to simultaneously grow our relationship and business. We are thrilled to be a chosen carrier of The Plastics Group!”

An official presentation of the award will be made to JB Hunt Transport officials later this year.
