NASSTRAC Carrier of the Year Program

Posted By Gail Rutkowski, Friday, February 24, 2017

As long as I have been a member of NASSTRAC I have voted every year for the Carriers of the Year. I believe it is important to acknowledge and recognize those providers who have taken care of the business and provide excellent service to my customers. Back when I was working in corporate transportation I remember carriers calling on me to ask for my vote. The award meant something to them and I believe it still does to this day.


Sadly, as demands on shippers increase, they have become more and more disconnected from the people who are delivering to their customers, they have lost interest in recognizing the performance of the folks who day in and day out are delivering to our customer’s docks dealing with congestion, both on the highways and at the docks, along with every increasing customer demands and regulations.


It is important that every Regular NASSTRAC member who is a buyer of transportation services cast their vote this year. All carriers who are members of NASSTRAC are on the ballot and are graded on a quantitative scale in five key areas: Customer Service, Operational Excellence, Pricing, Business Relationship, and Leadership/Technology. Last year we expanded the Specialty Carrier category. This category includes a growing list of niche carriers who handle shipments within a defined service area (i.e. AK, HI, Canada and Mexico).


The NASSTRAC Carrier of the Year program is co-sponsored by Logistics Management, a leading trade magazine for buyers of logistics services. The award will be presented at the NASSTRAC 2017 Annual Shippers Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL April 9-12 and will be recognized in Logistics Management magazine.


Please take a few minutes this week to show your carriers some love. Vote for the NASSTRAC Carrier of the Year. If you haven’t received your email link to the ballot please email info@nasstrac.org.


What are you waiting for? Go! Go now and vote!
