Each year, Superior Carriers selects only one vendor to receive the President's Supplier Excellence Award—a supplier named above all others in recognition of an outstanding partnership. This year, Stuart Tank Sales was that vendor, having exceeded our expectations in 2013 by helping us meet challenging operational goals. The award is a tribute to the many people at Stuart Tank Sales who provide us with exceptional service along with a deep and unmatched understanding of our business.

Stuart Tank Sales operates as a tank dealer for several manufacturers, as a bulk tank truck repair facility, and as a resource for tank trunk and trailer parts. Although Superior Carriers' relationship with Stuart Tank Sales is not long in tenure, a high level of trust has developed between our two organizations. Stuart Tank Sales received our prestigious President's Supplier Excellence Award for the following services rendered in 2013:

  • Entering our quality process when our new STEs came off the line, carefully inspecting each prior to our taking delivery;
  • Assisting us in redesigning the new ladder configuration for driver fall protection, so we now have the best in the industry;
  • Palletizing tractor components (pumps, compressors, etc.) for our new trucks and sending the components to three primary modification centers for Mack, Kenworth, and Peterbilt. 

Upon hearing of the award Mike O'Donell, President and CEO of Start Tank Sales, commented in part: “This award means a lot to us, as one of your solid partners. We very much appreciate our relationship with your team. We are always striving to do better”.

On March 19, a luncheon and award presentation was held in Oak Brook, Illinois to honor Stuart Tank Sales. We look forward to a long and happy mutually beneficial partnership.
