Sixth annual program recognizes 23 high-performing contract carriers for exceptional quality and reliability of service, operational excellence, and adoption of transportation technology.

C.H. Robinson recently revealed the winners of its annual Carrier of the Year awards.

“As we continue to navigate a challenging freight market, we are listening to the needs of our carrier network and are excited by the ongoing advancements we’ve made to make it easier to gain access to the best freight, quick payment, technology, and service to support their businesses.”
