LOUISVILLE, KY… Mercer Transportation, a leading transporter of general commodities, offering flatbed, step deck and dry van services, specializing in iron, steel, pipe, machinery, building materials, glass and military freight, has been selected as an Inbound Logistics Magazine Top 100 Trucker for 2019. According to Inbound Logistics Publication Editor, Felecia Stratton, Mercer Transportation was selected out of more than 300 service providers. Selection process was competitive. As Stratton states, 2019 Top Truckers were named through a qualitative assessment of service providers. Information was gathered from surveys, online research, and interviews with both shippers and truckers to determine the leading transportation providers of the year.
“To be named one of the Top Trucking Companies for 2019 is a significant honor as it recognizes and celebrates the efforts of our Mercer Transportation family,” Mercer Transportation Director of Sales, Mike Wilks said. “Our nationwide network of Independent Owner Operators and Independent Agents excel in the negotiation and transportation of goods for our customers.”
According to Stratton, the 2019 Top 100 Trucker List is published in print and online editions of Inbound Logistics Magazine and provides a directory of transportation-service providers that offer a range of services to help meet the needs of customers in the logistics
business. The Top 100 List is described as one of the more significant resources available to those interested in high quality supply and demand services.

The company has also been recognized by the United Parcel Service for best on-time delivery during peak season in 2018 and recently received the KTA Safety Award for the second year in a row.”
