Uber Freight closed out Deliver 2020, the third-annual conference for shippers, with the presentation of its first-ever Deliver Customer Awards. We’re proud to work with these and so many other outstanding companies, and couldn’t be more pleased to announce this year’s winners.
The Community Champion Award went to a shipper who worked above and beyond to help their community, using their supply chains to transport essential goods. This year’s winner was Second Harvest, who worked closely with our team to make a huge impact during the Move What Matters campaign, and serve the needs of rural communities all across Canada. We’re so grateful for their commitment and partnership.
We presented our Enterprise Innovator Award to the shipper who harnessed new technology to improve the efficiency and productivity of their supply chain the past year. This year’s winner was LG, an early adopter of our Powerloop drop trailer program and who continues to lead the way in testing and partnering with Uber Freight on new product innovations.
The Supply Chain Resilience Award went to a shipper who creatively overcame challenges presented by COVID-19 and used the crisis as an opportunity to improve their operations. This year’s winner was Target, who leveraged the Uber Freight API to build a better way to secure critical capacity and manage unforeseen demand surges.
The Small Business Innovator Award went to a shipper who successfully incorporated Uber Freight into their supply chain to create a new approach to better meet demand. This year’s winner was Buckeye Polymers, for their continuous valuable feedback and willingness to participate in new product launches, including our expansion into Canada.
Similarly, we presented our Innovation Partner Award to the mid-market shipper who incorporated Uber Freight into their supply chain to source capacity in real-time and manage new costs. This year’s winner was Lidl, who in just the past few months, has helped us develop our new bulk load building functionality, as well as worked with our teams to integrate their dedicated fleet and eliminate deadhead miles to build a more sustainable future.
And finally, our Sustainability Initiative of the Year Award is given to a shipper that has made substantial commitments towards operating sustainably, and has been able to make strides to either reduce climate impact or cut GHG emissions. This year’s winner was The Home Depot, who has done exceptional work to build a sustainable future for transportation.
Congratulations to all of this year’s Deliver Customer Award winners! We’ll see everyone next Fall. Read more about Deliver 2020 here.
