Southeastern Freight Lines, a leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, has received Home Depot’s 2019 LTL Carpet Carrier of the Year Award. Home Depot recognized Southeastern based on outstanding performance in key metrics, general ease of doing business and responsiveness to special requests and disaster recovery.

The key metrics within this award are based on Home Depot’s ‘Rack and Stack’ metrics which measure adherence to transit time standards, gap time of final delivery and ability to provide electronic status updates within defined time-frames.

“The Home Depot has a very large and sophisticated supply chain and being recognized for this award is truly an honor,” said Southeastern Senior Vice President of Corporate Planning and Development Woody Lovelace. “It is not only a testament to our Southeastern team’s commitment to handling their shipments, but also our concern in managing our relationship with sincere care and integrity.”

This award was presented to recipients in Atlanta, Georgia during The Home Depot’s annual Executive Carrier Conference on January 25, 2019.
