2014 Quest for Quality Awards Dinner set for September 24

By Logistics Management Staff
August 01, 2014

For over 30 years, Logistics Management’s Quest for Quality Survey has been regarded in the transportation and logistics industry as the most important measure of customer satisfaction and performance excellence—and the annual Quest for Quality Awards Dinner has been widely considered the best evening of the year for carrier and 3PL executive networking.

This year’s awards dinner will take place on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, at 6.00 p.m. at the San Antonio Grand Hyatt—the final evening of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Annual Conference. Our editorial staff will be in attendance to present the 2014 Quest for Quality Awards to the 155 winners. 

Following cocktails, dinner, and the awards presentation, our guests will be treated to comedian Greg Hahn. A favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show, Greg has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Comedy Central, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV and CMT.

During this webcast our presenters will apply the findings of the 23rd Annual Trends & Issues in Transportation and Logistics Study to the world of shipper-carrier decision making. They'll examine the primary aspects that will influence the future direction for shipper-carrier decision-making.

For February, the month for which most recent data is available, the SCI dropped to -1.0 from January’s 2.6, with FTR explaining that the short term positive impact from one-time adjustments for rapidly dropping diesel prices and the suspension of the 2013 motor carriers hours-of-service expires later this year.

Seasonally-adjusted (SA) for-hire truck tonnage in March was up 1.1 percent on the heels of a revised 2.8 percent (from 3.1 percent) February decline, with the SA index at 133.5 (2000=100). This is off 0.3 percent from the all-time high for the SA of 135.8 from January 2015 and is up 5 percent annually.

Intermodal volume was up 8.1 percent annually at 280,016 containers and trailers. This outpaced the week ending April 11 at 270,463 and the week ending April 4 at 271,127. AAR said this tally marks the second highest weekly output it has ever recorded as well as the first time container and trailer traffic was higher than carloads for a one-week period.

Ocean cargo carrier service reliability across the three core East-West trades hit a five-month peak in March with an aggregate on-time performance of 64 percent, according to Carrier Performance Insight, the online schedule reliability tool provided by Drewry Supply Chain Advisors.
