MINNEAPOLIS, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NASSTRAC announces the recipients of its 2013 Carrier of the Year program, an annual program that recognizes transportation providers on a quantitative scale in five key areas: customer service, operational excellence, pricing, business relationship, leadership and technology.
This year, NASSTRAC regular members who are qualified buyers of transportation services graded carriers they use on a 4-point scale in the following categories, based upon regional scope and capabilities: National Truckload, Parcel, Expedited, and LTL (in National, Multi-Regional, Regional-Northeast, Regional-Southeast, Regional-Midwest, and Regional-West categories).
"This shipper-based recognition program encourages high performance by carriers," said Brian Everett, NASSTRAC executive director. "As a shipper-based association, we leverage this annual awards program to continuously encourage transportation excellence and validate carriers that are solid performers. Shippers and carriers alike view this awards program as a credible program through which appropriate industry recognition is given." As NASSTRAC grows its association membership in all modes of transportation, it plans to continue expanding the categories represented in the awards program.
Receiving the prestigious NASSTRAC Carrier of the Year Awards in 2013 are: Werner Enterprises in the Truckload category; FedEx Services in the Parcel category; and FedEx Custom Critical in the Expedited category. In LTL, the following are receiving awards: ABF Freight Systems in the National category; Old Dominion Freight Line in the Multi-Regional category; New England Motor Freight in the Regional-Northeast category; Southeastern Freight Lines in the Regional-Southeast category; Dayton Freight Lines in the Regional-Midwest category; and The Dependable Companies in the Regional-West category. Recipients of the award will be recognized at the 2013 NASSTRAC Shippers Conference & Transportation Expo taking place April 21-24 in Orlando, Fla.
The NASSTRAC Carrier of the Year program is co-sponsored by Logistics Management, a leading trade magazine for buyers of logistics services. For more information on NASSTRAC's awards program, annual conference, or membership, visit www.NASSTRAC.org or call 952-442-8850, ext. 208.
