Union Pacific Railroad was named the most admired company in the trucking, transportation and logistics industry by Fortune for the sixth consecutive year, UP announced last week.
The recognition is the 13th time in 17 years that the Class I has been named No. 1. The magazine's annual "World's Most Admired" list is published in the March 1 edition, according to a UP press release.
UP ranked No. 1 in seven performance areas: innovation, people management, use of appropriate assets, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, and quality of products and services.
Fortune's research partner, the Korn Ferry Hay Group, surveyed executives, directors and analysts to choose companies they admired most of among a list of 1,500 international and domestic companies.
