Small shipment conference names annual carrier award winners


The National Small Shipments Traffic Conference (NASSTRAC) recently announced recipients of its 2009 Carrier of the Year awards.

The award program recognizes transportation providers’ efforts in six areas: customer service, operational excellence, pricing, business relationship, leadership and technology.

This year’s winners are: Werner Enterprises in the “National Truckload” category; FedEx Services in the “Parcel” category; and Express-1 Expedited Solutions in the “Expedited” category.

In the less-than-truckload (LTL) segment, the winners are: Roadway in the “National” category; FedEx Freight in the “Multi-Regional” category; A. Duie Pyle in the “Regional-Northeast” category; Southeastern Freight Lines in the “Regional-Southeast” category; Dayton Freight Lines in the “Regional-Midwest” category; and Oak Harbor Freight Lines in the “Regional-West” category.

Recipients will be recognized at the 2009 NASSTRAC Logistics Conference & Expo, which will be held April 26-29 in Orlando, Fla.

NASSTRAC represents the interests of professionals involved in all areas of transportation, including full truckload, LTL, containerization and global logistics.
