  • Schreiber Foods has applauded D&D Sexton's transportation service again this year.
    For the fourth time, Dean Sexton brought home the Supplier of the Year award in the transportation category for Schreiber Foods. After winning this award for providing outstanding service in 2003, 2009, 2010 and again in 2013, Sexton said it was a great feeling to be partnered with such a prestigious company.
    “It's quite an honor,” Sexton said. “It takes a team – I've always dwelled on safety and over the years you develop that reputation. I've been fortunate enough to have people stay with me for years, and when I bring home that trophy, it's for everybody.
    “Quality is a major component of being an outstanding supplier to Schreiber and D&D works hard to deliver that quality.”
    D&D Sexton, Inc., was established in 1981 and currently operates 150 tractors, 350 refrigerated trailers with 192 full-time employees. The company specializes in the delivery of multi-drop, time-sensitive food products. Sexton said he has enjoyed his association  with Schreiber Foods since 1974.
    “The Carthage, Mo., based carrier strives to provide outstanding transportation service to Schreiber Foods' customers as well as their entire customer base,” the company stated in a written release. “This level of commitment to customers is what has made D&D Sexton the Midwest's number one common/contract refrigerated carrier.”
    Schreiber Foods is the largest employee-owned dairy company in the world, the leading supplier of store-brand cheese to the grocery industry and the largest supplier of process cheese to the foodservice industry. The company currently has 15 production plants in the U.S., and several abroad.
