HOLLAND, Mich., Feb. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holland, the leader in Central and Southeastern next-day delivery, has earned 2016 Midwest Region LTL Carrier Partner of the Year Award from Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC.
"We are honored to receive this award from our valued partners at Unishippers," said Holland President Scott Ware. "Our dedicated employees work extremely hard every day to deliver on our promise of providing quality, fast and reliable LTL next-day service. We take great pride in our industry-leading services and our commitment to achieving a level of customer satisfaction that is second to none."
Unishippers, a leading provider of third-party logistics services to over 50,000 small and medium-sized businesses, presented the award to Holland at its annual convention on Jan. 12. Carrier Partner of the Year winners are selected based on service quality, performance, loss and
damage events, customer service, claims resolution and overall commitment to the partnership.
"The most fundamental aspect of our business is having reliable carrier partners that we can trust day in and day out to promptly deliver our customers' shipments with excellence. Their performance ultimately impacts our customer relationships and reputation," said Kevin Lathrop, CEO and President of Unishippers.
Holland earned the accolade for the third time in four years, previously winning in 2015 and 2013. It also marks the first time that Holland, sister company Reddaway and YRC Freight each won the award.

Founded in Holland, Mich., in 1929, Holland provides industry-leading, on-time reliability for less-than-truckload shipments in the Central and Southeastern United States and in Eastern Canada.
