West Fargo, ND  (December 5, 2016) — This year, for the first time, C.H. Robinson is recognizing six North American truckload carriers with the Key Carrier of the Year Award. Midnite Express Inc. is the recipient of the award in the 101-399 truck size segment.  The company was nominated by their C.H. Robinson carrier representative for the new awards.

Midnite Express, as well as the other 101-399 truck fleets with Key status in the program, have exceptional service levels, have demonstrated efficiencies through automation and have established relationships with dedicated carrier representatives.

The company was recognized due to their continued willingness to go above and beyond not only for customers, but for their commitment and involvement in the community. “Our business with Midnite Express is very complimentary,” said Ridge Zielke, C.H. Robinson carrier representative. “We could not do what we do without their exceptional service.”

Midnite Express has 105 trucks, and is headquartered in West Fargo, ND.  The company has been in business since the 1940s. “C.H. Robinson makes it possible to service our customers; they have access to freight we would not normally have,” said Mike Peterson, president, Midnite Express. “Having a local office in Fargo helps build relationships and makes the experience more personable.”

C.H. Robinson’s Carrier Advantage Program supports its 68,000 contract carriers with a three-tier model. The program provides contract carriers earlier access to freight, a dedicated carrier representative, discounts on our Quick Pay program and the ability to submit offers via Navisphere Carrier, C.H. Robinson’s technology platform.
