Carriers, Convoy NewsPublished on September 11, 2023

Improving the lives of truck drivers and carriers is at the core of what Convoy is all about. This week, we could not be more excited to celebrate the dedication of all the carriers we work with. Happy National Truck Driver Appreciation Week!

Drumroll please….announcing the 2023 Haul Stars Awards Winners

As part of our celebration, we are proud to announce the winners of our fifth annual Haul Stars Awards*. This year we are recognizing eleven carriers for their outstanding work and industry leading quality. Each winner will receive their own commemorative trading card along with a $250 Target gift card, and a Convoy swag box.

We have two new award categories this year. The Electric Ace award, going to the carrier who completed Convoy’s first fully electric shipment and is charging forward to power the future of freight. This year also marks the first year that our shipper customers have officially joined us in celebrating these outstanding carriers. Target, Unilever, and Ardagh are each recognizing a top carrier with a Team Captain award, these are awarded to the top-performing carriers in Convoy’s network who hauled their loads over the past year. These three shippers wanted to join us in the celebration because of their deep appreciation for the carriers who keep their business moving.  

To continue with tradition, we will be presenting the award for Most Valuable Carrier to a carrier with impeccable quality scores who has gone above and beyond to make our app better. We will also be recognizing Division Champs, awarded the carrier in each region with the top quality scores. Join us in celebrating the eleven 2023 Haul Stars Award winners. You can read more of their stories throughout the week on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter

Earn more with less hassle

Beyond recognizing these amazing Haul Stars Award winners, we’re celebrating all carriers with a special offer. This week, any carrier who hauls with Convoy is eligible to save $700 on a two-month trailer rental**. 

We’ve seen carriers increasingly looking for better access to trailers to grow their fleets as they expand their businesses. This year we’ve made access to Convoy trailers more flexible than ever. Our trailer return options on power-only loads have increased from 7 to 14 days and carriers can now rent trailers from Convoy for a month or longer. These are just a few of the ways Convoy is working to help carriers earn more with less hassle.
