About the GLOBE Awards
The UltraShipTMS GLOBE Awards are conferred annually upon honorees selected from the growing base of UltraShipTMS transportation logistics management solutions users and associated business partners. GLOBE Award recognition is given to transportation logistics departments and in some cases individual practitioners who achieve transformative results in their operations using any or all of the solutions, strategies and best practices they adopt through their use and utilization of the UltraShipTMS platform.
GLOBE is an acronym for Guaranteeing Logistics Operations Boundless Efficiency. This annual award campaign honors those UltraShipTMS user organizations and associates pushing transportation logistics functions beyond expectations for efficiency, innovation, efficacy and success.
GLOBE Award judging is performed by a panel of subject matter experts from a cross section of functional areas within the UltraShipTMS organization. The panel contains Implementation Managers, Application Development Resources, Support & Training Leadership and Executive Leadership team members.
Honorees receive a certificate of achievement and an engraved crystal award statuette commemorating their accomplishment. Their achievement is announced to the industry via a national wire release.
