GSC Logistics Wins Target Corporation's Prestigious "Deconsolidator of the Year" Award

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  GSC Logistics, Inc. (GSC), the industry's forward-thinking logistics provider, today acknowledged that it has received Target Corporation's "Deconsolidator of the Year" award for its outstanding performance in 2009. This award is part of GSC Logistics' total commitment to Quality and Customer Satisfaction, which is designed to identify, implement, and measure performance standards throughout all elements comprising "end to end" supply chain services to Target's distribution centers and stores across the country.

Target Corporation selected GSC to receive its annual deconsolidator award based on GSC's 99.8 percent performance level, which covered approximately 12 evaluation categories such as level of service, outbound load quality and reporting, electronic data interchange (EDI) capabilities, and claims.

Target Corporation representatives Terry Cox, manager, Import Supply Chain, and Andrea Azcarate, supervisor, US Operations International Transportation, presented the award to GSC on April 7, 2010 at the company's annual deconsolidator conference held in Minneapolis.

"Being recognized with this prestigious award is a tremendous honor, and the entire GSC family is extremely proud of their exemplary service to Target's deconsolidation program," said Andy Garcia, chairman and executive vice president of GSC. "We believe that this award drives home our company wide commitment to customer satisfaction in every area of our business, and we look forward to continuing to work hard to exceed all of our customers' expectations in the areas of quality, reliability, and transparent services."

Target Corporation plans to issue a separate press release about this award later in 2010.
