Southeastern provides regional less-than-truckload transportation services. It was picked based on its overall spend and market share within its territory, automation and touchless execution metrics, and operations feedback taken from a survey measuring aspects of its performance.

“We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Transplace for this honor and commend our associates for the hard work and dedication to Southeastern’s commitment of quality without question service,” Miller said.

Transplace provides technology solutions to the trucking industry including transportation management software and logistics solution. Miller received the award while attending the 2021 Transplace Virtual Carrier Symposium. The event provides education, recognition and appreciation for more than 32,000 transportation carriers.
