Stevens Transport recently claimed the 2023 Kraft Heinz Dedicated Carrier of the Year award.

The refrigerated transporter provides truckload, expedited, specialized, regional, dedicated, intermodal, and third-party logistics services across North America. Kraft Heinz, one of the world’s largest food manufacturers, again recognized Stevens—Kraft’s largest dedicated carrier—for outstanding service.

“We are honored to receive the Kraft Heinz Dedicated Carrier of the Year Award,” Todd S. Aaron, Stevens vice chairman, said in a news release. “This acknowledgment underscores the unwavering commitment of our exceptional team members, who consistently deliver at a high rate of execution across all facets of our operations.

“I commenced our Kraft partnership circa 1994. We are humbled to be recognized for this distinguished recognition.”

Stevens delivers more than 25,000 loads annually with a focus on safety, on-time delivery, reliability, and professionalism in temperature-controlled transportation, the company reported. Stevens previously received several other awards from Kraft, including the Kraft Transportation Excellence Award, Heinz North America Frozen Carrier of the Year Award, Kraft Transportation Partnership Award, and Kraft Calvary Award.

“Receiving this award is a true honor, and it shows our commitment to excellence in every mile we drive,” said Robert Solimani, Stevens vice president. “For Kraft Heinz, our dedicated division is proud to provide innovative, customized transportation solutions. This recognition is a testament to the professionalism and hard work of every member of the team.”
