Echo Global Logistics Congratulates Valued Partners with 2022 Annual LTL Carrier of the Year Award

Echo Global Logistics Congratulates Valued Partners with 2022 Annual LTL Carrier of the Year Award

Each year, our LTL carrier partners continue to inspire and impress us. We at Echo know our industry would not function without the hard work of our dedicated LTL carriers who keep the national economy moving with their dedication to safety, professionalism, and timely delivery. Though we aim to celebrate our carriers every day, we’ve taken this time to give special recognition to a few of our carriers who continually help us deliver outstanding solutions for our clients.

Originally launched in 2008, Echo’s LTL Carrier of the Year Awards were founded on the basis of expressing our deep appreciation for LTL trucking companies and by extension, the drivers who keep the industry rolling. These committed workers operate tirelessly, critically supporting the global supply chain, often without recognition for their efforts. This year’s awards honor companies who have not only continued to show excellence in overall quality, but also in YOY shipment and revenue growth, performance, customer service, and technological effectiveness.

Congratulations to our National, Regional and Platinum Award recipients. Platinum Awards recognize select strategic, regional LTL carriers.
