Fedex Custom Critical honors owner-operators with Four Star Award
GREEN, Ohio â€“ FedEx Custom Critical, Inc., North Americaâ€™s largest provider of expedited time-critical shipments, recently rolled out the red carpet for its 2007 Four Star Award winners. The award recognizes the top 50 independent contractors who exemplify the companyâ€™s dedication to superior customer service and safe driving. These contractors lease their vehicles to the company as owner operators.
This is the eighth year for the Four Star Award. Owner-operators who qualify for the distinction must meet the Four Star criteria for the fiscal year, which ran from June 1, 2006 to May 31, 2007. The criteria include accident-free driving, on-time service, availability and load acceptance.
All of the winners and their spouses or guests were invited in July to spend three nights at The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas for a celebration in their honor.
â€œOur independent contractors work hard all year to make sure our customersâ€™ needs are met,â€ said Virginia Albanese, president and CEO of FedEx Custom Critical. â€œAnd they do so while keeping safety as their top priority. The Four Star Awards are one way we can show our appreciation for their efforts.â€
