HOMEWOOD— Southland International Trucks, a locally owned full-service dealership, was recently honored with the International Truck Presidential Award.
The award, introduced in 2017, honors the top seven percent of dealerships—those that achieve the highest level of performance in operating and financial standards, market representation and customer satisfaction.
Southland International Trucks has been locally owned and operated since 1986 by president and owner, Drew Linn. Southland has two locations in the greater Birmingham area, offering a full-service dealership, trucks, trailers and Idealease.
The company has six locations throughout Alabama in cities consisting of Birmingham, Homewood, Huntsville, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa. Winner of the 2013 American Truck Dealers Award, Southland stocks new and used trucks, trailers and buses. They also offer one of the largest parts inventories in the Southeast and have more than 90 service bays.
“This award is yet another accolade for the tremendous team we have at Southland International Trucks,” Linn said. “I’m extremely proud of our team members. It’s also indicative of the new products and services we offer, and it speaks well to the future of our brand.”
According to Mark Belisle, senior vice president of distribution at Navistar, the International Truck Presidential Award is the highest honor an International dealer principal can achieve from the company.
Southland is one of only 14 International dealerships in the United States and Canada to earn this recognition in 2017.
“The Presidential Award also recognizes the effort and dedication of all the dealership’s employees,” Belisle said. “A highly skilled, professional staff is a critical success factor for any commercial dealership. Drew Linn is clearly committed to growing his business and being recognized by customers as the dealership of choice.”
