(Columbus, Ohio) – Zipline Logistics, the Columbus, OH-based third-party logistics provider, is celebrating “10/4 Day” – a holiday the company coined in 2016 to recognize top trucking service providers.
“We appreciate our outstanding carrier partners and developed 10/4 Day to celebrate their hard work,” elaborates Walter Lynch, CEO of Zipline Logistics. “Retail delivery requirements are tightening up and not all carriers can rise to the call. We’re thankful for our top partners who uphold Zipline’s standards of visibility, communication, and accountability.”
Zipline Logistics’ awarded carriers were evaluated on numerous qualifiers. Selection criteria included but were not limited to, commitment to high-quality service, overall performance, ease of working relationship, and load volume.
Top carrier partners were awarded by region, and are listed below:
Northeast – Jettex LLC
Midwest – Tryon Trucking
Southeast – Jim Lawrence Transportation
Westcoast – Thru Traffic Transportation
Zipline Logistics’ operation teams are organized and structured into four distinct regional groups. This allows representatives to build impactful carrier relationships and effectively minimize volatile market swings. Zipline Logistics’ regional coordinators are true experts, acting as authorities on area lane activity, rate changes, and geographic influences.
History of 10/4 Day
“10-4” is a common phrase used by truck drivers to close radio correspondence and loosely means “agreed” or “understood.” Zipline Logistics began publicly celebrating the event on October 4, 2016 but has leveraged the date internally and with carriers since the company’s inception in 2007.
Operating with the purpose of “Improving the lives of transportation professionals,” this holiday is a hallmark for Zipline Logistics. The company issues certificates and gifts to recognized carriers, going above and beyond to show its appreciation.
