FORT WORTH, Texas – BNSF Railway was recently honored by Honda for excellence in transportation. American Honda Motor Co., Inc. President and CEO Toshiaki Mikoshiba presented the company’s annual Premier Partner Awards to 15 suppliers that demonstrate excellence in quality, value and customer service. BNSF was recognized for efficient and reliable railway transport of finished vehicles.

“The Premier Partner Award winners exemplify Honda’s philosophy of meeting and exceeding customer expectations,” said Charles Harmon, senior manager, Administration Division, American Honda. “They provide Honda with exceptional service each and every day, and we thank them for their continued commitment to our business.”

The Premier Partner Awards were established in 1998 to recognize suppliers who embrace Honda’s philosophy of exceeding customer expectations. The award winners represent excellence in a variety of industries including automobile batteries, railway transportation, information technology services, marketing services and much more.

“BNSF is honored to be recognized by American Honda for the eighth time since the award’s inception,” said Dave Fleenor, assistant vice president, Automotive Marketing. “We are committed to providing our customers with best-in-class rail transportation service year in and year out.”

Earlier this year, Honda celebrated its 25 millionth automobile built in the U.S. at its Ohio-based plant. Twelve different Honda and Acura models are built at five Honda auto plants located in the U.S.
