Reliable Carriers was the proud recipient of the Road Carrier Award for the second consecutive year at the fourth Automotive Global Awards North America. Held in the heart of Motor City, The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit has historically been one of the city’s most illustrious hotels. Having been restored to its original splendour of 1924, it is now a modern emblem of a legendary city revitalized.
The Awards delivered their promise of celebrating the successes of the audience and the industry as a whole, with Terry Virts, NASA Astronaut presiding over the evening. The purpose of the Awards held fast throughout: that every guest left feeling renewed with positivity for the industry they are passionate about.
The Awards were presented following the successful Automotive Leaders Summit, which is an annual conference that attracts top automotive executives from around the world to discuss industry trends, forecasts and strategies.
Reliable Carriers has the largest enclosed automotive transportation fleet in North America. Since 2012 it has invested more than $100 Million in new equipment. This investment has resulted in over 110 new enclosed trailers and over 100 new tractors. In 2017 Reliable Carriers delivered more than 20 new trailers and tractors and with a further investment of $13M will deliver 20 new enclosed trailers and 15 new tractors in 2018.
Tablet based mobile applications have been installed on every unit in its fleet, enabling faster response to client requests which results in better load optimization and increased revenue. In addition, Reliable Carriers’ GPS location data allows dispatch to locate drivers and match them up with the nearest job to reduce dead heading/empty miles and respond quickly to urgent requirements.
“Reliable is a valued business partner, who make it their business to fully understand yours, it is obvious everyone takes great pride in the company”.
Reliable Carriers was one of 21 companies and individuals rewarded for having achieved the unachievable or for having pioneered a new way of thinking or working.
The awards are designed to celebrate achievement, creativity, knowledge and partnership.
