ABF Freight® Selected as SupplyChainBrain 2016 Great Supply Chain Partner

  • Nominations for 100 Great Supply Chain Partners submitted by satisfied customers

FORT SMITH, Arkansas, July 14, 2016 — ABF Freight®, an ArcBestsm company (Nasdaq: ARCB), is among the 100 Great Supply Chain Partners nominated by satisfied customers for inclusion in the SupplyChainBrain annual listing, which appears in the magazine’s 2016 July/August issue.

“We are very grateful to our customers for nominating ABF Freight for this recognition. By serving as a partner to our customers, rather than merely a vendor, we create added value for their supply chains,” said ABF Freight President Tim Thorne. “With an emphasis on innovation and quality performance, we will continue to supply solutions to our customers’ toughest supply chain challenges.”

The magazine’s list of partners is based on entries voluntarily submitted to SupplyChainBrain.com, where the official nomination form has been posted since early this year. Over the last few months, many of the magazine’s readers received emails asking them to participate and directing them to the form. Other readers and users of the website independently found a link to the official nomination form on the home page.

“Over the course of our six-month online poll, we ask supply chain professionals to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance. This year we received literally hundreds of nominations for solutions providers in every aspect of supply chain management,” said Brad Berger, SupplyChainBrain publisher.
