Last week, we held our annual Carrier Symposium in Allen, Texas, which brought our carrier partners together for education, collaboration, and appreciation. This year’s event focused on the latest issues impacting the transportation industry, including capacity, ELDs, regulatory changes, and the driver shortage. In addition, attendees had an opportunity to share new insights and discuss ways to improve shipper-carrier relationships through “preferred shipper” and “preferred carrier” initiatives, and how to leverage technology innovations to improve efficiency and real-time freight visibility.
Transplace relies on strong partnerships with over 32,000 transportation carriers in order to overcome ever-changing industry demands and consistently deliver outstanding service to our customers. That’s why we strongly believe in acknowledging exemplary service.
During the event, Transplace honored its 2019 Carrier of Choice Excellence Award Winners, which recognized carriers that have gone above and beyond the call of duty by providing the highest levels of service, embracing our technology for improved visibility, and establishing quality relationships amongst all stakeholders. Specific areas of emphasis in the selection process includes:
This year, Transplace recognized 25 transportation service providers in the categories of truckload, less-than-truckload (LTL), flatbed, private fleet, dedicated, refrigerated, specialty, expedite and cross-border, Mexico and Canada. Take a look at the full list of winners below!
Congratulations to all of the winners, you truly provide best-in-class service to our customers – and thank you to all that attended this year’s Carrier Symposium!
