“NASSTRAC’s goal through this program is to encourage high performance by carriers through this shipper-based recognition program,” said Eric Morley, NASSTRAC’s current chairman and senior director – supply chain of Best Buy Co. “Shippers and carriers alike see this to be a very credible program through which appropriate industry recognition is given.”
