Four locations supported by Cory operations received recognition for their performance, including:
- Bob’s Shorewood, Ill., for Effective Completion Rate, Voice of the Customer, and Customer Service Index;
- Bob’s Aberdeen, Md., for Effective Completion Rate;
- Bob’s Frederick, Md., for Voice of the Customer; and
- Bob’s Melville, N.Y., for Best Image Award.
“This recognition is a great example of what made Cory a great fit for J.B. Hunt,” said Nick Hobbs, EVP and president of dedicated contract services at J.B. Hunt. “The relationship is built on trust and commitment, and we look forward to continuing to exceed the expectations of Bob’s Discount Furniture and their customers.”
J.B. Hunt completed the acquisition of Cory in February. Cory is now a part of J.B. Hunt Final Mile Services, a division of the company’s Dedicated Contract Services business unit. Final Mile operates one of the largest nationwide, commingled cross-dock operations and has the ability to serve 100 percent of the contiguous United States. With the Cory acquisition, Final Mile has grown to include 100 locations and over 3.1 million square feet of warehouse and facilities space.
