WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Chemours Company (“Chemours”) (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in Titanium Technologies, Thermal & Specialized Solutions, and Advanced Performance Materials, today announced the winners of its second annual Carrier of the Year Award: Marten Transport (Platinum award) and Hirschbach Transportation Services (Gold award).
The Carrier of the Year Award recognizes excellence in transportation of Ti-Pure™ titanium dioxide (TiO2) to Chemours customers. The Titanium Technologies supply chain, procurement, and logistics teams, with support from CLX Logistics, developed a consistent set of criteria to evaluate top North American carriers by load counts. Carriers were evaluated based on the 2021 rate of on-time pickup and delivery, customer service, and ease of doing business, among other metrics.
Marten Transport, a U.S.-based transportation company, was named North American Platinum Carrier of the Year for the second year in a row boasting more than a 99% on-time pick-up and delivery rates. Hirschbach Transportation Services, a U.S.-based transportation company, was named as North American Gold Carrier of the Year with an on-time delivery rate of over 95%. Across metrics, both companies performed strongly, showcasing dependability and commitment to partnership in serving Ti-Pure™ titanium dioxide customers.
“Marten and Hirschbach are the carriers we turn to when we need someone to get the job done,” said Ed Sparks, President of Titanium Technologies and Chemical Solutions at Chemours. “They have both proven time and again that they can meet and exceed our standard of excellence while serving our customers and demonstrating true partnership. I want to personally recognize and thank them and all their employees for providing this high-level of service, especially with National Truck Driver Appreciation Week coming next week. We look forward to continued partnership in 2022 and beyond.”
The Titanium Technologies team will assess its carriers on an annual basis.
