Award recipients were determined based on an evaluation of each company's 2019 supplier scorecard performance – a rating system that evaluates supplier performance in quality, delivery, cost and warranty – and input from FCA senior leadership.

Marc Althen, Penske Logistics president: "We are honoured to receive the FCA Supplier of the Year Award for logistics services and we thank the FCA team for this recognition. We are proud to receive recognition for our industry-leading technology, tools and processes that benefit our customer. We also commend and thank our associates for their incredible work in supporting FCA, which makes an award like this possible."

"These are the 'best of the best' in our industry and they will continue playing a leading role in our collective success."
