MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Memphis-based third party logistics provider Cornerstone Systems, Inc.
(“Cornerstone”) announced being named Intermodal Carrier of the Year by Whirlpool Corporation.

Founded in 1911 and headquartered in Benton Harbor, MI, Whirlpool Corporation remains one of the largest intermodal shippers in the country. The Intermodal Carrier of the Year award is based on overall performance (on-time pickup and delivery/service, tender/load acceptance, data accuracy/integrity, invoice accuracy) and strategic partnership (additional value beyond performance). Five finalists were chosen from roughly 20 intermodal providers within the Whirlpool network. The winner was selected by votes from a mix of all Whirlpool transportation and supply chain operations personnel.

“To have Cornerstone Systems be recognized and celebrated by Whirlpool Corporation is a tremendous honor for us”, said Matt Miller, Cornerstone Systems Area Vice President – Sales. “Day in and day out our people are committed to providing an industry leading customer experience, and it’s so fulfilling to see that dedication pay off. Whirlpool Corporation has given us opportunities and we’ve worked hard to make the most of them. We look forward to a long and growing relationship with Whirlpool Corporation.”

“To win this award, in what has been one of the most difficult markets in my 32-year career, is very rewarding”, said Tim Clay, Cornerstone Systems President/CEO. “It highlights the importance of developing a partnership, where there is a constant exchange of information in both directions, allowing for better planning and execution.”

With service coverage spanning all of North America, Cornerstone Systems offers intermodal, railcar and railcar consolidation, truck brokerage, container drayage, LTL, warehousing and transloading services, on-site logistics, and more.
