Florida East Coast Railway Ranks #1 Among Intermodal/Rail Providers

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – August 16, 2017 — Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway outranked all other rail/intermodal service providers for outstanding performance in
 Logistics Management’s annual Quest for Quality survey.  

The Quest for Quality Awards are the gold standard for customer satisfaction and performance excellence for carriers, ports and logistics providers worldwide.

“What makes the Quest for Quality Awards stand out in the market is the fact that the winners are determined by the readers of Logistics Management—the buyers of logistics and transportation services who put these carriers and service providers to work around the clock and the around globe,” said Michael Levans, Group Editorial Director of Peerless Media, LLC., the publisher of Logistics Management.  

The Quest for Quality poll is the most extensive of its type conducted in the transportation and logistics industry. Each year, the poll studies the importance of key criteria when evaluating and using transportation and logistics service providers, including rates, and ranks transportation and logistics service providers based on key evaluation and purchase criteria. The survey received over 5,400 responses from top freight decision makers.


“Our goal is to be the premier transportation solution into and out of Florida and to provide service excellence to all our customers,” said FECR President and CEO Jim Hertwig. “We believe that customers are the lifeblood of our business, so we are absolutely thrilled to have them recognize our efforts. We sincerely thank 
Logistics Management and our customers for bestowing this prestigious award upon us.”

The railway will formally accept the award during an awards gala at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) annual conference in Atlanta on September 26th.

LM’s Annual Quest for Quality Awards is the culmination of a six-month research project conducted by Peerless Research Group (PRG).  For more than three decades, LM’s Quest for Quality has been regarded in the transportation and logistics industry as the most important measure of customer satisfaction and performance excellence.
