In making their decision, EGL evaluated all of its transportation providers in a number of performance categories, including Carrier Dependability, Pro-Active Communication, Invoicing Accuracy, Claims, Customer Service, Responsiveness, Carrier Website, Creativity, Pricing, Training, and Convenience.

Thanks are also due to the hardworking men and women of Team Holland, who made this win possible."
This is the fifth Carrier of the Year Award that Holland has won thus far in 2014. Recent awards include the Best Transportation Supplier for 2013 from Avery Dennison, and the 2013 LTL Carrier of the Year award from Vehicle Service Group.
