UP earns logistics award

Union Pacific (UP) earned Nissan Motor Company's 2012 Logistics Carrier Conference Logistics Success Story Award, which identifies carriers and providers that went above and beyond normal expectations in the past year.

UP was among 15 carriers and providers recognized during the conference. UP created an optimized shipping schedule at the Los Angeles port facility that outlined the best days to move Nissan's product, reducing overall transit time.

"Being recognized by Nissan is an honor," said Linda Brandl, UP vice president and general manager of automotive. "Our focus on delivering value through customer service made this award possible. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Nissan by providing safe and reliable service while developing innovative transportation solutions."
