John Deere bestows this award to vendors who qualify their ‘Achieving Excellence’ program. Partner status is the highest honor given by the US-based manufacturer.
The ‘Achieving Excellence’ program was devised by John Deere to concentrate on improvement and innovation for the global supply chain.
Participating vendors success relies on them meeting challenging metrics in several key performance sectors, including cost management, quality and support. WW Ocean has now become a member of an elite club of just one as they are the only ocean carrier to ever be awarded Partner Status ten years consecutively and enter the 10-year Hall of Fame.
Accepting the award for WW Ocean at John Deere’s annual Global Achieving Excellence awards banquet was President & COO, Mike Hynekamp. Also in attendance at the event were WW Ocean and John Deere Account Manager; Kraig Jondle, Head of WW Solutions; Doug Peterson and Head of Commercial USA; Flavio Batista.
