April 30, 2012 – FreightCenter, a third-party logistics company, today announced Southeastern Freight Lines as its Regional Carrier of the Year for 2011. This is the inaugural award recognizing a carrier that supports a specific region of the United States.
Southeastern Freight Lines excels at delivering less-than-truckload (LTL) freight transportation through proactive customer service and safe handling of customer shipments.
"Of our regional carriers, Southeastern surpasses our expectations of a quality transportation provider," said Matthew Brosious, CEO and co-founder of FreightCenter. "Through our partnerships with best-in-class carriers, like Southeastern Freight Lines, we are able to satisfy the needs of our growing customer base."
With more than 60 years serving the industry, Southeastern Freight Lines has been an award-winning freight company with a dedicated focus on customer service. Dominating the southeast region of the United States, Southeastern Freight Lines has developed a reputation for outstanding guaranteed delivery and specialized service options.
"The large number of quotes and shipments processed on behalf of Southeastern is evidence of the impact our partnership has on customer satisfaction. Southeastern Freight Lines has a solid reputation for timely pickups and deliveries," said Doug Walls, chief information officer for FreightCenter. "For freight moves within this region, we strongly encourage our customers and account managers to choose Southeastern Freight Lines."
FreightCenter has been consecutively named to the Inc. 5000 List for fastest-growing private companies, and is a Florida company to watch for its economic growth and development. For more than 14 years, FreightCenter has worked in partnership with asset-based carriers to ship more than a million shipments throughout the United States, Canada and beyond.
FreightCenter's Carrier of the Year award honorees are chosen annually from among more than 40 of its partner carriers. The top national carrier is selected through an analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors such as the total number of completed shipments, number of processed quotes, percentage of claims-free shipments and overall customer and agent feedback. A ‘best value' service is defined by the greatest combination of price, equipment, transit time, class and service.
