HTS wins Logistics Quality award at 2017 North American Automotive Global Awards
On 5 April, Horizon Terminal Services was awarded the Logistics Quality award at the North American Automotive Global Awards held at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans.
Amidst the sounds and musical talents of the New Orleans Jazz Festival, Automotive Executives gathered in the heart of this historic and vibrant city to celebrate achievement, creativity, knowledge and partnership.
Celebrations for the 2017 North American Automotive Global Awards commenced with a champagne reception and opening address by Sam Ogle, sponsored by RICH Logistics where individuals and companies across 20 categories were honoured at this prestigious black-tie ceremony.
With its round-the-clock nightlife and vibrant live-music scene embodying the spirit of the carnival, the 2017 Awards event built on the successes of its two previous North American Awards events by once more delighting guests with excellent food and opulent surroundings.
The Logistics Quality award was won by Horizon Terminal Services. Horizon Terminal Services’ approach to continuously pursuing opportunities to establish new strategically located automotive locations, which not only bring significant network optimisations but also an improved environmentally friendly footprint, enables Horizon to bring real and sustainable value to the automotive industry. As data visibility becomes more important in terms of providing efficiency improvements, Horizon provides a real opportunity to its customer base to control productivity and inventory through the terminal operating system.
