NASSTRAC announces the recipients of its 2012 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, a record number of 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).
"NASSTRAC's goal through this program is to encourage high performance by carriers through this shipper-based recognition program," said Eric Morley, NASSTRAC's current chairman and senior director – supply chain of Best Buy Co. "As a shipper-based association, we leverage this annual awards program to continuously encourage performance excellence in various market segments of transportation. Shippers and carriers alike see this to be a very 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.

- U.S. Xpress, in the Truckload category
