Union Pacific Railroad was the lone railroad named by General Motors as one of its suppliers of the year.
Each year, a team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives determines the winners. Decisions are based on supplier performance in the areas of quality, service, technology and price.
"GM is proud to honor our best suppliers, including Union Pacific, with the Supplier of the Year award," said Bo Andersson, GM group vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "We believe this award is the most meaningful honor in the supplier industry. During these difficult economic times, it is more important than ever to recognize performance in our supply base."
