AmeriFleet Transportation, the industry leader in total logistics solutions and transportation services to the fleet management and corporate fleet industry, has been named a 2006 Georgia Focus Recognition recipient. The Georgia Focus Recognition is the first of three levels of achievement in seeking the state’s highest honor for organizational performance excellence – the Georgia Oglethorpe Award. Once the final level is achieved, an organization is positioned to apply for the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
Created in 1996, the Oglethorpe award is named for Georgia’s founder, James Edward Oglethorpe and follows an intense assessment based on the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award Criteria. The process for the award includes a rigorous self and third party assessment of a business with applicants receiving a written feedback report detailing their respective strengths and improvement opportunities. In addition to the performance and self-assessment process, Georgia Oglethorpe provides educational services designed to improve organizational performance and strengthen Georgia’s economy.
A letter from Georgia Governor Sonny Purdue congratulating AmeriFleet on their achievement was presented to AmeriFleet executives during the Georgia Oglethorpe Annual Conference & Awards Banquet. The banquet was held on September 28, 2006 at The Loudermilk Center in Atlanta.
“We’re proud of our achievement in recognition of AmeriFleet’s dedication towards continuous improvement and 100% customer satisfaction,” said John Norris, President, AmeriFleet Transportation. “The Georgia Focus Recognition award is the first step, but nonetheless an important step, on our continuous improvement journey ultimately leading to meeting the prestigious National Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award criteria.”
