Awards & RecognitionPublished on October 31, 2022

Convoy is honored to be named the 2022 National and South Atlantic Carrier of the Year by Niagara Bottling. This marks the fourth National Carrier win for Convoy in the last five years, an award that in 2022 was based on Convoy’s ability to collaborate and provide solution-oriented approaches across various levels of Niagara Bottling’s organization and facilities. The South Atlantic Carrier of the Year award recognizes exceptional coverage and flexibility to service varying production shifts and dynamic sourcing in Niagara’s most challenging region. 

“This is an extremely competitive space as we only hire the best carriers,” said Paul Estrada, Sr. Manager of Carrier Relations at Niagara Bottling. “There were many factors we considered when deciding the National Carrier winner, and what stood out for Convoy is their strong partnership and willingness to collaborate at all levels. Convoy continues to demonstrate that whether it be good times or challenging times, they always deliver.”

Since Convoy started working with Niagara Bottling in 2016, the goal has been to provide reliable service with elastic capacity to their logistics team. Through a collaborative partnership, Convoy and Niagara Bottling have been able to meet demand regardless of market conditions or production shifts. 

“Winning two carrier awards from a forward-thinking supply chain leader like Niagara Bottling is a humbling achievement, particularly as we continue to navigate through the soft market,” said Andrew Hammes, Niagara Account Director at Convoy. “This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without our cross-functional teams including customer experience and account management, along with strong collaboration from Niagara. We are excited to continue providing unmatched flexibility with uncompromising quality within their supply chain ecosystem.”
