Union Pacific was named Logistics/Transportation Provider of the Year at the 2012 American Metals Market (AMM) Steel Tube and Pipe Conference. This award recognizes a transportation or distribution company that best meets the needs of the tube and pipe industry. Union Pacific was recognized for its Pipeline Express Product.
“It is an honor to win this award from American Metals Market,” said Eric Butler, Union Pacific vice president and general manager industrial products. “Union Pacific recognizes the importance of providing a turnkey operation to the pipe industry and is constantly striving to improve the logistics of transporting these materials as safely and efficiently as possible, helping the industry grow.”
Each year, a panel of judges from leading businesses in the tube and pipe industry and members of AMM’s editorial team determines the winners. The panel bases its selection of award winners on company performance in the areas of customer support, service, on-time pick-up and delivery, fuel cost containment, safety and technology.
