(Columbus, Ohio) – Zipline Logistics is again celebrating its valued carrier partners on “10/4 Day”—a holiday the company coined in 2016 to recognize top trucking companies in the logistics provider’s network.
“This year is especially critical to recognize the hard work of our outstanding carrier partners,” says Walter Lynch, CEO of Zipline Logistics. “COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of truck drivers, especially in the consumer goods supply chain. We’re thankful that our top partners have continued to provide outstanding service while upholding Zipline’s standards of visibility, communication, and accountability in the face of a particularly challenging year.”
The Columbus-based logistics solutions provider awarded carriers that were evaluated on numerous qualifiers. Selection criteria included but was 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 – GMT Logistic Inc
Southeast – Mercer Transportation
Westcoast – CPL Express Inc
Intermodal – Bayview Logistics
Zipline Logistics’ operation teams are organized and structured into four distinct regional groups as well as an additional group for intermodal-based providers. This allows representatives to build impactful carrier relationships and effectively minimize volatile market swings. 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 recognized 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.
