NASSTRAC announced the recipients of its 2009 Carrier of the Year, an annual program that recognizes transportation providers on a quantitative scale in five key areas: customer service, operational excellence, pricing, business relationship, leadership and technology.

This year, NASSTRAC regular members who are qualified buyers of transportation services graded carriers they use on a 4-point scale in the following categories based upon regional scope and capabilities: National Truckload, Parcel, Expedited, and LTL.

"Winning the NASSTRAC Expedited Carrier of The Year Award is an honor. It is especially gratifying as this award is based on the input of the shippers. An award determined by the customer is the ultimate compliment to our team. This award indicates that our pursuit of being the number one expedited carrier in the country is on track," Jeff Curry, President of Express-1 stated.
