Magno International, LP (Magno), a minority-owned global supply chain solutions provider, announced today that it was the proud recipient of Eaton Corporation’s (Eaton) 2020 “Premier Supplier Award”. Eaton’s Premier Supplier Award is presented to the transportation provider that delivers exceptional service for critical “line-down” shipments.
“I am so proud of our team. Winning this prestigious award demonstrates that a minority-owned small business can deliver exceptional service in a critical supply chain need area (like plant shutdowns) for a global category killer like Eaton Corporation,” said Jesus Lovo, Magno Managing Director and EVP, Operations.
“Furthermore, given the competitive arena, it means that we can hold our own against much bigger supply chain providers when given an opportunity.”
Annually, Eaton hosts its many global supply chain partners in its Global SCM Supplier Conference. After sharing the company’s results, strategic direction, and future needs, the Eaton leadership team recognizes its partners at various levels. Premier is the highest level of recognition awarded to providers that deliver exceptional service in critical supply chain need areas for Eaton.
At the onset of the COVID pandemic, Magno’s time-definite services were able to execute at the highest levels when capacity was constricted, and options were limited. Magno helped Eaton’s Expeditor Echo Bid Board to deliver time-sensitive shipments and minimize the cost of time lost on plant shutdowns.
When asked about the award, Chris Monica, Vice-Chair of Magno commented: “The global impact on supply chains in the past 18 months has been colossal and there’s really no effective way to describe the ripple effect this has had on global organizations. Eaton entrusted Magno to be part of their solution set to manage the unpredictability of the market. Given this charter, we set into motion 24-hour support to both clearly understand requirements and execute services that helped Eaton maintain their commitments to its clients. We are honored and humbled by their recognition for our performance and all the credit goes to our dedicated employees who helped made this happen.”
