Congratulations to the following 2019 Carriers of the Year!
Dry Van: Lincoln Trans (Antelope, CA)
“Working with Lincoln Trans has been nothing short of a blessing,” said Riley Callicutt, R2 Logistics Los Angeles Branch Manager. “The partnership we have created between Lincoln and R2 has started to extend beyond the Los Angeles office and they have provided top notch service, reliability, and great communication across our entire network.”
“We originally began working with Lincoln for a high volume drop trailer program in the Pacific Northwest. Their flexibility and willingness to assist with capacity outside their normal lanes has helped us foster a growing relationship with one of our top customers. It’s been a pleasure working alongside their team and with people that have the same mindset; it’s about the partnership and playing the long game together. “
Refrigerated: Deerfield Farm Services (Elmer, NJ)
“Deerfield Farm Services exemplifies the best traits that a brokerage could ask for in their carrier network: reliable, efficient, and understanding,” said Jacob Marsh, R2 Logistics Denver Branch Manager. “They have run almost all of our bulk carrot loads for one of our toughest lanes. The delivery appointment has never made their rate change, and their ability to scrounge up trucks, even last minute, has been nothing short of outstanding.”
“The entire Deerfield team is extremely easy to work with. We’ve never had a single issue with them falling off a load at the last minute. Their service and relationship with the shipper has even helped us garner more volume from our customer. This is a top-notch carrier in our network, I only wish we had more of them available.”
LTL: Southeastern Freight Lines (Lexington, SC)
“Southeastern Freight Lines has provided our customer base with consistent reliable service in 2019 and in years past,” said John Hansen, R2 Logistics Director of LTL Operations. “They were instrumental in seamlessly transitioning one of our incumbent Truckload clients to also utilizing R2 Logistics’ LTL service. By combining excellent pricing and execution we were able to completely satisfy our customer while requiring minimal intervention on our side.”
“Southeastern’s Charleston, South Carolina terminal was essential in this process by providing great customer service and working hand in hand with the shipper to ensure on time pickup and delivery of all shipments. Furthermore, we found these aspects of Southeastern to hold true with all of our LTL clients in 2019.”
