Toledo, OH, September 25, 2019 – Modern Transportation is pleased to share that they have recently been selected as the recipient of the Owens Corning Global Supplier Award for 2019. To be nominated for the Global Supplier Award, suppliers are evaluated by Owens Corning using six behaviors dimensions, throughout the year: Safety, Sustainability, Innovation, Value Creation, Risk Mitigation, and Spirit of Partnership. These behaviors when demonstrated by the supplier reinforce their relationship with Owens Corning and drive positive results for their customers. Presented by Owens Corning Vice President of Strategic Sourcing, Brad Lazorka, this year’s award was announced during an awards ceremony held at Valentine Theatre in Toledo, Ohio on September 25, 2019.
“Modern Transportation has been a partner to Owens Corning for more than two decades. Over the years, we have delivered a variety of innovative solutions to help Owens Corning’s business units be more productive,” said Patrick Cozzens, President of Modern Transportation. “We’re very proud of our long-standing partnership with Owens Corning, and we were honored to receive this award.”
Owens Corning’s relationship with Modern has grown and strengthened as Modern has demonstrated a true commitment to putting safety first, helping the company increase productivity, and meeting Owens Corning’s unloading and logistics needs throughout the United States and Canada. Most recently, Modern hired more than 60 drivers and other personnel with less than four weeks’ notice, allowing two Owens Corning facilities to resume operations promptly in the new year. This was just one of many examples highlighted during the award presentation.
On hand to receive the award for Modern Transportation were President, Patrick Cozzens, and Director of Logistics, Chris Perry.
