Time Transport, Inc. was honored by Wisconsin Clean Cities (WCC) and MillerCoors for sustainable transportation efforts and delivery service efficiency in separate events last year. In December, Time Transport, Inc. received the Wisconsin Clean Cities Forward Fleet Award in recognition of the company’s use of alternative fuels and sustainable transportation options to reduce petroleum use.
More than 87 percent of Time Transport’s fleet is now powered by compressed natural gas, or CNG. Of its 53 units, 46 are CNG-powered. The company is working to have 100 percent of its fleet CNG-powered very soon.
“Time Transport is a valued Wisconsin Clean Cities member and partner,” WCC Executive Director Lorrie Lisek said. “Their sustainable transportation programs are making a difference in Wisconsin and we thank them for their efforts.”
MillerCoors Procurement in May 2017 conducted its 7th Annual Supplier Recognition Awards at its Chicago headquarters. Time Transport, Inc. received the 2016 Regional Logistics & Transportation Supplier of the Year award and was one of 11 award recipients. “We feel very honored to be recognized at the top, among peers, for daily transportation of the MIllerCoors product,” Time Transport, Inc. president Jerry Buchmeier said. “We thank them for this honored recognition.”
The award followed an analysis of metrics of contract transport service with a special emphasis on on-time pick-ups and deliveries. Time Transport, Inc. reported greater than 98 percent on-time service. “Obviously we all think this is well deserved as the performance and metrics have proven that Time (Transport, Inc.) is the right choice for (the award),” Jake Kilgore, transportation manager for MillerCoors said.
