(Columbus, Ohio) – Third-party logistics provider (3PL) Zipline Logistics is celebrating “10/4 Day” – a holiday the company coined in 2016, focused on recognizing top trucking service providers.

“10/4 Day is not just about honoring the great work of our carrier partners, but about delivering on our mission to improve the lives of transportation professionals” elaborates Wally Lynch, Zipline Logistics CEO. “2018 has been a transformational year in trucking, bringing to light the need for better driver conditions and treatment. Zipliners are true advocates for our trucking partners and we hope this holiday showcases our unyielding appreciation.”

Recognized 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.

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.
