Leading carriers are recognized for transportation excellence by third-party logistics provider
TAMPA, Fla (May 2, 2013) — FreightCenter.com, a third-party logistics company and freight technology provider, has recognized three transportation partners as Carriers of the Year.
"We are fortunate to establish strong partnerships with outstanding carriers,” said James Brosious, founder of FreightCenter.com. "A number of considerations were made when determining the award recipients, such as operational excellence, on-time service, low claim ratios and customer feedback.”
Nearly 70 percent of all FreightCenter.com accounts require expert business-to-business freight transportation, and the majority of these customers recommend the following carriers for services provided in 2012:
National Carrier of the Year: R+L Carriers
Regional Carrier of the Year: Southeastern Freight Lines
Platinum Partner: YRC Freight
"Based on a high volume of quotes and shipments, it is evident that R+L Carriers, Southeastern Freight Lines and YRC Freight are our customers’ carriers of choice. These companies provide superior service and consistently exceed the needs of shippers,” said Brosious. "We assist shippers in finding the best value on shipping, and our Carriers of the Year are a top choice for quality freight transportation.”
The National Carrier of the Year award is presented to a carrier that provides coast-to-coast service, while the Regional Carrier of the Year award names a carrier that focuses on transportation within a specific geographic area of the United States. The Platinum Partner award acknowledges a carrier that has achieved growth and success through a commitment to partnership and service.
FreightCenter.com’s Carrier of the Year annual award honorees were chosen from among more than 40 of its partner carriers. Carrier selection was made through an analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors such as the total number of completed shipments, number of processed quotes, percentage of claims-free shipments and overall customer and agent feedback. A ‘best value’ service was defined by the greatest combination of price, equipment, transit time and service.
