March 21, 2024
Winners, including Hirschbach and Bozel Refrigerated, recognized for high-quality service and operational excellence in North America.

Lineage revealed the seven winners of its annual Carrier of the Year awards, which honor key transportation service providers for their high-quality service, operational excellence, and integral role in helping Lineage meet the needs of its customers.

Lineage selected the 2023 winners from the U.S. and Canada based on a list of criteria around performance, using quantitative and qualitative data to support the selection process. The recipients of this year’s awards were honored within seven categories: U.S. national and regional truckload (TL), U.S. drayage, Canadian truckload, U.S. less-than-truckload (LTL), dedicated fleet and, new for 2023, transportation services.

“These awards reflect our deep appreciation for the commitment and hard work of our carrier partners worldwide, without whom Lineage would not be the industry leader it is today,” Jim Thompson, Lineage vice president of transportation, said in a news release. “We extend our gratitude and look forward to continuing this tradition of honoring excellence within our carrier network in the years to come."

The full list of the 2023 carrier award winners includes:

  • U.S. National Truckload Carrier of the Year: Holland Enterprises
  • U.S. Regional Truckload Carrier of the Year: Renewable Transport
  • U.S. Dedicated Truckload Carrier of the Year: Hirschbach Transportation Services
  • U.S. Less-than-Truckload Carrier of the Year: Bozel Refrigerated Truck Service
  • U.S. Drayage Carrier of the Year: Land Transportation
  • Canadian Truckload Carrier of the Year: Captain Transport
  • Transportation Services Award: Breakthrough Fuel

Relying heavily on its network of private fleet trucks, temperature-controlled trailers, rail cars (both temperature-controlled and insulated), in addition to a number of dedicated service providers and hundreds of contracted carrier partners who aid in keeping the global food supply chain moving, Lineage’s Integrated Solutions offers expertise in transportation solutions that boost supply chain efficiency, improve on-time performance, and help manage landed cost.
