HOLLAND, Mich., Feb. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holland has been recognized by Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC with their 2015 Regional LTL Carrier Partner of the Year award. Unishippers--the nation's first and one of its largest third party logistics (3PL) companies--presented the award to Holland at its annual convention. Holland President Scott Ware and Vice President of Sales & Marketing Jim Ferguson were in attendance to receive the award.
Carrier Partner of the Year winners are selected based on service quality, performance, loss and damage events, customer service, claims resolution and overall commitment to partnership.
“We are honored to receive this award from our partners at Unishippers,” said Ware. “Customer satisfaction is the best measure of success in any industry, and this award serves as affirmation that Holland is doing business the right way. Our combination of unmatched performance and uncompromising customer service creates a shipping experience that is second to none. And all of this is made possible by the hard work and dedication of our Holland professionals. It is their commitment to excellence that allows Holland to continuously deliver the very best in on-time, next-day LTL shipping. We would like to thank Unishippers for this honor, and we look forward to providing many more years of award-winning service.”
“Our franchisees put their trust every day in our carrier partners to deliver shipments on time and do so with excellence,” said Kevin Lathrop, president of Unishippers. “Without these fine carriers, we don’t have our great business, so it’s an honor for Unishippers to be able to show our appreciation through the Carrier of the Year awards.”
This is the second time in three years that Holland has received this award. Holland was also named Regional LTL Carrier Partner of the Year by Unishippers for 2013.
