Mississauga, ON--For the second year, Polaris Transportation Group has received the Canadian Transportation & Logistics “Carrier of Choice” award. The title is awarded after a company meets industry-set benchmarks of excellence (Shipper’s Choice Award) for more than five consecutive years.
Canadian Transportation & Logistics magazine polls their readership annually, searching for Canada’s top-tier companies.
“The first year we won, the award really knocked us out,” said Polaris President Larry Cox. “The votes come from across the country and the performance measurements by category are very comprehensive.”
According to Cox, it’s all about the team. “This is an award that measures the quality of the company; it’s not something you can nominate yourself for or predict.” He added, “That’s why it feels so fantastic every year we win. We’ve doubled in size since we won our first Shippers Choice award and look forward to continued growth into the future.”
The Carrier of Choice Award isn’t something you can plan for. “It’s not something we can control,” said Cox. “ But, the way we work together and with our customers truly sets us apart. It’s great to be acknowledged with this award from the Canadian shipping community.”
The Carrier of Choice Award is conducted through a partnership between the CITT and the Canadian Industrial Transportation Association (CITA). The process of evaluating major players within the transportation industry is meant as a means for CT&L readership to ascertain who is setting the standard in terms of service area, response time, customer communication and more.
