SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA, April 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In 2013, 3PLs were introduced to SHIFT Freight, a company dedicated to changing how companies think about moving freight. Within that year, the company built more than 100 valued partnerships moving customers' less-than-truckload shipments across the country with the best customer experience in freight.
Understanding the importance of helping its strategic partners to grow and better itself as an organization, SHIFT implemented an annual evaluation of relationships to award their top partner carriers and 3PLs. Using a variety of metrics to review its partners, SHIFT analyzed strategic alignment, operational effectiveness, and team and company relations, along with a number of overall performance metrics to determine their winners.
"SHIFT has open communication with all of its partners, both customer and service providers, to ensure mutual benefits of each relationship are fully optimized," said Tommy Skinner, Vice President of SHIFT. "We deeply value all of our partners, but also see the importance in recognizing the extraordinary work and development of key relationships annually."
This year's Partner Carrier of the Year award was awarded to Standard Forwarding. Based in the Midwest, Standard Forwarding has been recognized for its operational excellence and efforts of continuous improvement.
"It's amazing to see what two brands can do when they work together to execute the greatest LTL experience possible," added Skinner. "From the start, the Standard Forwarding team has matched our care and detail in performing services for our customers."
In the next month, the Standard Forwarding team will receive an in person visit from SHIFT Freight to be presented their designation plaque. Notified by email of their distinction, Standard Forwarding was overjoyed with the news.
"After these first grueling months of winter, it certainly helps the troops to be recognized by our customers for a 2013 service award," said John Liss, Director of Sales for Standard Forwarding, LLC. "Thank you for the recognition as your 2013 Partner of the year."
