Landstar Awards Southwire Company, LLC Overall M.U.S.T. Customer of the Year
Landstar System Inc. a worldwide, asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions delivering safe, specialized transportation services, announced Southwire Company, LLC headquartered in Carrollton, Georgia, as its 2020 Overall Landstar M.U.S.T. Customer of the Year.
Landstar’s Mutual Understanding of Safety Together, or M.U.S.T., program involves an extensive on-site review of a customer’s facility, followed by discussion and analysis of safety and securement practices.
Traditionally presented during Landstar’s annual agent convention, this year Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni made the announcement during a presentation to independent Landstar agents via a Cisco WebEx® conference call.
After announcing that Southwire Company, LLC earned the 2020 M.U.S.T. Customer of the Year award, Gattoni also recognized Landstar Agent Lisa Nestor, owner of Success Transportation, Inc., the independent Landstar agency that provides Southwire with transportation logistics services.
In 2020, Nestor conducted a M.U.S.T. customer visit at a Southwire Company location where the wire manufacturer’s employees had the opportunity to listen to the monthly Landstar Safety Thursday Conference Call. Following the call, Nestor and Landstar safety representatives toured the facility to review loading dock systems and securement processes.
“Together, Landstar and Southwire Company, LLC reviewed carrier safety and securement procedures at the facility to support our mutual commitment to a safety-first culture,” said Landstar Transportation Logistics Vice President of Safety and Compliance Mike Cobb. “Lisa, her agency and Landstar’s safety personnel did a great job creating a system to increase security at the customer’s facility, designed to confirm the identity of each driver, truck and trailer arriving to the plant.”
