WASHINGTON — A supply chain industry website is calling CSX CEO E. Hunter Harrison its "executive of the year."

Supply Chain Dive, a Washington, D.C.- based website says the CSX Transportation chief's story is one of "how a single executive can single-handedly transform a company."

Website editors cite Harrison's quick move toward Precision Scheduled Railroading and the effects of that change on the railroad itself and it's customers as part of its reason for the honor.

"A successful transition will see no more disruptions, and no love lost with shippers. Look to the company's quarterly reports to monitor revenues, costs of legal claims, and sales figures to see whether non-captive shippers are sticking with the company through the transition," Supply Chain Dive writes. "Any further intervention by the STB will also be important, so keep an eye on those stories."
