John Lower, director of strategic carrier management for Transplace, said, “Selection criteria for these awards are data-centric and based on companywide, quantitative data as well as survey feedback from the supported customer. Specific areas of emphasis in the selection process include on-time service, tender acceptance, claims, EPA SmartWay partnership, and ease of doing business factors such as responsiveness, customer service, and the accuracy and timeliness of invoicing and status updates from the carrier via EDI.”
