EFW Earns Home Depot LTL Carrier of the Year Award

Sep 25, 2012

Home Depot, the world’s largest home improvement specialty retailer, named Estes Forwarding Worldwide (EFW) as its 2012 Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) Carrier of the Year. EFW received the award for its outstanding commitment to customer service and dedication to the partnership between the two companies. For example, in response to Hurricane Irene last year, the EFW team transported 10,000 shipments of emergency supplies in two weeks to Home Depot stores from Florida to Maine.

“To be recognized by Home Depot in this way is a great honor and a tribute to our employees who have worked so hard to ensure the success of the EFW and Home Depot alliance. We deeply value our relationship and are dedicated to the continuous improvement process, investment in technology and unwavering dedication to customer service that led us to this point.”

Scott Fisher, president and CEO, EFW

The LTL Carrier of the Year award was presented to EFW on September 19, 2012, nine years to the day from the first shipment Home Depot tendered to the company. Today, EFW is the preferred expedited carrier for Home Depot and handles an average of 20,000 shipments annually.
