Know a shipper who does things right? Want to give them a pat on the back? Here’s your chance.
FreightWaves is seeking nominations for what it calls the Shipper of Choice Awards. It wants to bestow 100 of them to start with. The Shipper of Choice 100 will ultimately be winnowed down to the Shipper of Choice 25. FreightWaves publishes a daily transportation newsletter and provides market data on North American logistics.
According to the Freightwaves website, “The term ‘shipper of choice’ is used throughout the industry, but what does it take to be a good shipper? Driver friendliness, flexibility, accommodations, efficiency, and low detention times all come to mind.”
FreightWaves wants to “honor the companies that rise to the level of a true Shipper of Choice as voted on by the industry itself.” Nominees must be shippers — companies that send or transports goods by sea, land or air. Nominations are open to anyone in the industry.
Who has a better perspective on shippers good and bad than the drivers who serve them? That’s you.
For more detailed information and to nominate your favorite shipper, visit the FreightWaves website or click here. Nominations for the Shipper of Choice Award will be accepted until March 1.
The FreightWaves initiative is co-sponsored by Convoy.com, the web-based broker.
FreightWaves founder and CEO is 39-year-old Craig Fuller, whose father, Max Fuller, co-founded U.S. Xpress, where he is executive chairman. The CEO and president of U.S. Xpress is now Max Fuller’s oldest son, Eric.
