Global logistics company C.H. Robinson today announced the winners of its annual Carrier of the Year Awards. Selected from the company’s network of 96,000 contract carriers, this program recognizes 23 carriers that stood out for exceptional quality and reliability of service, operational excellence, and adoption of technology to enhance overall efficiencies and performance. This is the first year C.H Robinson introduced new cross-border categories including high-performing winners from Canada and Mexico.
