Today America's Second Harvest announced that Freightquote.com(R) received its top award for logistics services. Freightquote.com has worked with the organization since 2002, and was selected for technology, flexible service and other criteria.
Cost and Service are Key Factors
The nation's largest distributor of food for charitable organizations, America's Second Harvest relies on several transportation and logistics providers as it moves thousands of shipments annually to hunger relief agencies like soup kitchens and emergency shelters. "Food is often perishable and our deliveries are often to people who need help immediately," said Peg Collins-Sarinyamas, Director of Transportation for the charity. "So we demand highly reliable transportation vendors." As a non-profit, the organization also requires cost-effective transportation solutions, Collins-Sarinyamas noted. "The people at Freightquote.com are always helpful."
Freightquote.com provides various freight transportation management services to the organization including truckload brokerage. "We are extremely pleased to be recognized by America's Second Harvest," said Bill Goodwin, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Freightquote.com. "We look forward to expanding our relationship with them in the future."
Commitment to the Cause is Important
"Freightquote has demonstrated a real commitment to our organization," said Collins-Sarinyamas. "They understand the importance of our work and support our efforts to fight hunger in the United States."
