Being recognized in the top 15 of over 1,400 vendors is a true honor. We are proud to serve American Honda as a transportation partner for over 25 years.” “This year marks the 60th anniversary of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., a milestone that would not be possible without the strength and commitment of our supplier community,” said Harmon. “We hold our partners in high regard and we thank them for their unwavering dedication to our business.” ACL is an eight time winner of the award.
