Etowah, NC  (December 5, 2016) — This year, for the first time, C.H. Robinson is recognizing six North American truckload contract carriers with the Key Carrier of the Year Award. Rite-Way Express is the recipient of the award in the 11-50 truck size segment.  The company was nominated by its C.H. Robinson carrier representative for the new awards.  

Rite-Way Express, as well as the other 11-50 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.

Rite-Way Express was recognized because the company continues to go above and beyond for C.H. Robinson and their customers. “We have been through a lot together. We rely on carriers like Rite-Way to service our customers,” said Justin Nelson, C.H. Robinson carrier representative. “Companies like this give us A+ service while stepping outside their comfort zone.”

Rite-Way Express is a 50 truck dry van carrier headquartered in Etowah, NC. The company has been in business for over 20 years.  “It is great being recognized for our service. I can only think of a handful of times I have been thanked in this industry,” said Dusty Morgan, owner of Rite-Way. “It is great working for a reputable company like C.H. Robinson who shows appreciation for their contract carriers.”

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.
