Press Release: Holland Presented with LTL Carrier of the Year Award by Parker Hannifin for Second Consecutive Year

HOLLAND, Mich., Jan. 22, 2015 – Holland has been recognized with the Parker Hannifin 2014 LTL Carrier of the Year award. A global leader in motion and control technologies, Parker Hannifin presented the award “in recognition of Holland's commitment to operational excellence and continuous improvement.” This is the second consecutive year that Holland has received this award from Parker Hannifin. 

Reed Tepper, Parker Hannifin Manager North American Logistics and Transportation and Nicole Tremaine presented the award to the Holland team: Scott Ware, President; Jim Ferguson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing; and Keith Berlan, Regional Corporate Account Executive.

Parker Hannifin evaluated LTL carriers across a variety of service and performance measures. In addition to raw performance numbers, carriers were measured based upon the results of an annual customer service survey taken by Parker Hannifin representatives from all of the company's North American shipping locations. Categories of evaluation included on-time service, claims performance, continuous improvement participation, EDI invoicing compliance, billing accuracy and customer service. 

“It is both a pleasure and an honor to receive this award for the second consecutive year from our valued partners at Parker Hannifin,” said Scott Ware, Holland President. “We thank Parker Hannifin for this generous recognition, and for their continued partnership. Our dedicated employees work hard every day to deliver on our promise of fast, reliable and friendly LTL service. At each level we take great pride in delivering industry-leading service and quality.” 

This award comes as the fifth honor this year for Holland. The company also recently received the 2014 Top LTL Carrier of the Year award from VSG (Vehicle Service Group). Additional accolades include the Exel EDI Compliance award, the LTL Carriers of the Year award from M33 Integrated Solutions, selection of Holland driver Russ Simpson to the safety elite American Trucking Associations’ America’s Road Team, and the Great West Safety Award for outstanding achievement in highway safety from the Michigan Trucking Association and Great West in cooperation with the American Trucking Associations.
