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."
