Swift Transportation Named as a Top Supplier for Sears Holdings

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Swift Transportation (NYSE: SWFT) announced today it has been named a 2010 Partner in Progress for Sears Holdings Corporation. Swift Transportation received the award for demonstrating a unique ability to foster a disciplined culture, creating both win-win and value added transportation solutions.

“Through our continued collaboration, we will be able to more effectively leverage the breadth of our portfolio and the power of our brands.”

Each year, Sears Holdings grants the prestigious Partners in Progress award to a select group of supplier companies. These suppliers provide Sears Holdings with quality products and services, from apparel, appliances and tools, to marketing, facilities, design and technology. Of the over 30,000 suppliers that work with Sears Holdings, less than 1 percent have the privilege to receive this award.

“The Partners in Progress award has recognized the commitment, quality and innovation of our top-performing supplier partners for the last 30 years. The dedication of these suppliers allows us to continue to present our customers quality services, which support our company’s goal of becoming the leader in integrated retail – in-store, online and at home,” said Lou D’Ambrosio, president and chief executive officer of Sears Holdings Corporation. “Through our continued collaboration, we will be able to more effectively leverage the breadth of our portfolio and the power of our brands.”

“Sears has been a long-standing relationship for Swift Transportation. The communication between the two organizations remains the key to success. The entire team at Swift Transportation is honored to receive the Partners in Progress Award from such a world-class retail organization such as Sears. Swift and Sears is a prime example of a win-win relationship where both companies continue to benefit regardless of the economy.” - Richard Stocking, President and COO, Swift Transportation.

The Partners in Progress recipients are selected from nominations submitted by Sears Holdings’ associates who purchased goods and services from suppliers in 2010. The award recognizes suppliers for product or service quality, innovation, diversity and overall market performance.
