BIRMINGHAM, AL… Montgomery Logistics, a full-service logistics provider, has named Melton Truck Lines, Inc., Tulsa, Okla., as its 2018 Carrier of the Year.
Montgomery Logistics established the Carrier of the Quarter & Year awards in 2018 to recognize carriers for their value as long-term partners. Some of the criteria to be considered include safety, on-time pick up & delivery, volume of shipments, communication and customer service. These partners are an overall extension of the Montgomery team, providing consistent, safe and reliable capacity daily.
“To be partnered with a carrier the caliber of Melton Truck Lines has been a true game changer for us,” says Steve Monson, Montgomery Logistics General Manager. “Melton is driven by safety and works closely with our team providing solutions and superior service. Their reputation certainly precedes them, and we are proud to name Melton as our inaugural Carrier of the Year.”
Bob Peterson, Chairman & CEO of Melton Truck Lines, was pleased to accept the recognition. “I am proud that Melton is being recognized for our steadfast desire to exceed expectations in all facets of our customer-facing efforts,” Peterson said. “We look forward to further developing our partnership with Montgomery Logistics such that together we continue to be viewed as industry leaders in logistics and transportation.”
In order to be considered for Carrier of the Year, the carrier must have been nominated for Montgomery Logistics Carrier of the Quarter. Melton was nominated every quarter and by delivering more than 500 loads and a half a million safe miles in 2018, the award was most deserving.
Montgomery Logistics, based in Birmingham, Ala., is a nationwide, third party logistics provider specializing in truckload and over-dimensional shipments.
