TORONTO ,  June 22, 2016 /CNW/ — On Thursday,  June 9th 2016, Kelli Saunders, President of Morai Logistics Inc.,  an Independent Business Owner of Mode Transportation,  was the recipient of The Woman Exporter of the Year Award from OWIT-Toronto (Organization of Women in International  Trade-Toronto).

Nominees  also had to have earned their primary income from the business and must have been  responsible for its daily operations. A significant portion of Kelli’s  company’s business had to have come from exporting products or services.

The Woman Exporter of  the Year Award honors an outstanding woman entrepreneur who, through her  exporting endeavors, is advancing women and the image of Canadian business  women in the international community. 

Kelli was presented this award for her  company’s work with major fast moving consumer goods companies as a third-party  logistics provider with expertise in cross-border intermodal logistics in the  US and Mexico.

Jim Damman, President of Mode  Transportation, said: “We are all very excited for Kelli.  She is an outstanding businesswoman, and she  and her team do a great job of providing the best export solutions to her  valued customers.  This award is very  well deserved.  Her hard work in  receiving this award is something that makes all of us very proud.”
