shipper of choiceDalton, Ga.—Shaw Industries Group Inc. was named a 2021 Shipper of Choice by FreightWaves, in partnership with ArcBest. Each year, FreightWaves chooses select companies that its carrier and broker readers consider their “Shipper of Choice.” The award was presented to 25 different manufacturers, distributors and retailers from across the country. Shaw is the only flooring manufacturer to be recognized with this honor.

“With our logistics and supply chain strategies, Shaw’s main focus is service to our customers,” said Dean Orem, divisional vice president of global logistics at Shaw. “Then we seek the most efficient manner to execute. But ‘service first’ is what we live by, which is why this recognition by our service providers is such an honor.” 

FreightWaves is the world’s leading supply chain intelligence platform. The company reported it assessed the 2021 Shipper of Choice awardees on their ability to keep the American economy moving by fighting driver detention, providing accessible facilities and understanding what it takes to remove inefficiencies from the supply chain. 

“While this has been a challenging year for the global supply chain, our entire network of drivers, distribution and logistics teams worked tirelessly to ensure our customers received the most timely and efficient service possible,” said Kevin O’Meara, vice president of integrated supply chain at Shaw. “Their dedication and commitment to our customers makes Shaw a proud Shipper of Choice.”
