FreightWaves Announces Shipper Of Choice Winners


For the first time, FreightWaves and its partner Convoy have recognized the manufacturers, distributers and retailers who do the best job of keeping the American economy moving by fighting driver detention, providing accessible facilities, and understanding what it takes to remove efficiencies from the supply chain.

Kellogg's took home the first-place trophy in the awards after voting that was managed by Katz, Sapper & Miller to ensure a credible and independent process.

Nestle took home second place, followed by Walmart Inc (NYSE: WMT), Conagra Brands Inc (NYSE: CAG) and Home Depot Inc (NYSE: HD).

Carrier members of the Truckload Carriers Association, along with members of the Blockchain in Transport Alliance, voted on the winners.
