Lowe's Home Improvement named Union Pacific its 2011 Rail Carrier of the Year at its Global Transportation Conference. Lowe's based its selection on Union Pacific's commitment to customer service and its ability to provide a variety of products.
It is the second time Union Pacific won this award. Lowe’s began the rail carrier recognition program in 2009 and Union Pacific was the first award recipient.
“Our team works closely with customers to develop freight transportation solutions that meet their specific needs,” said Bradley Thrasher, Union Pacific vice president and general manager, industrial products. “We are proud to receive this recognition and will continue to look for new and innovative ways to provide value to Lowe’s.”
