Santa Fe Springs, CA – In 2013, 3PLs were introduced to SHIFT Freight, a company dedicated to changing how companies think about moving freight. Within that year, the company built more than 100 valued partnerships moving customers’ less-than-truckload shipments across the country with the best customer experience in freight.

Understanding the importance of helping its strategic partners to grow and better itself as an organization, SHIFT implemented an annual evaluation of relationships to award their top partner carriers and 3PLs. Using a variety of metrics to review its partners, SHIFT analyzed strategic alignment, operational effectiveness, and team and company relations, along with a number of overall performance metrics to determine their winners.

“SHIFT has open communication with all of its partners, both customer and service providers, to ensure mutual benefits of each relationship are fully optimized,” said Tommy Skinner, Vice President of SHIFT. “We deeply value all of our partners, but also see the importance in recognizing the extraordinary work and development of key relationships annually.”

This year’s 3PL Partner of the Year Award has been presented to Worldwide Express, a world-class transportation services re-seller. Worldwide Express has been honored for their sales and business development efforts and an ongoing willingness to collaborate for the betterment of both brands. 

“The Worldwide Express team never ceases to amaze me with their professionalism and hunger to acquire new business,” added Skinner. “From freight coordinators to sales representatives, sales managers and corporate leadership, the Worldwide Express team shows continued care with both their customers and strategic partners.”

In the next month, Worldwide Express will receive an in person visit from SHIFT Freight to be presented their designation plaque. Notified by email of their distinction, management was incredibly gracious for the distinction.

“We see SHIFT as a progressive up and coming LTL carrier that is shaping the future of the industry,” said Mike Grayson, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Express. “We are honored to be recognized by them as we continue to build a prosperous partnership.” 

Headquartered in Southern California, SHIFT Freight exclusively works with only the best 3PLs in the industry to sell their services so they can focus entirely on moving the freight. Transforming the stagnant transportation industry with its unrivaled customer service and innovation, SHIFT has changed what 3PLs expect from their LTL carrier partners.
