ABF Freight appears on the list for the seventh consecutive year.

The rankings for the 125 leading organizations were unveiled during an awards gala February 15 during the Training 2016 Conference & Expo, February 15-17 in Orlando, Florida.

That’s particularly true of our Quality Process, which relies on continual training and improvement as we strive for error-free service for our customers,” said ABF Freight President Tim Thorne. “We are grateful to have our program recognized by the editors of Training magazine.”
