HUDSON, IL – Nussbaum Transportation Services has received the 2023 Truckload U.S. Regional Carrier Award from Penske Logistics. Penske announced their 2023 Freight Management Carrier Awards during a ceremony in Phoenix.

Penske says winners were chosen “from among Penske’s base of trucking carriers operating within its freight management operations. There are several award qualifications: a Penske Logistics enterprise scorecard combined with customer, operations, and sourcing feedback.” Modes recognized included brokerage, flatbed, intermodal, liquid, LTL, and truckload. Along with Nussbaum, Mesilla Valley Transportation and Midwest Freight Systems Corp were honored as 2023 Truckload U.S. Regional Carrier winners.

“Penske is an impressive organization, and we’re thankful to have them as a partner,” said Chris Aranda, Vice-President of Sales & Business Analytics at Nussbuam. “Our business with them has grown over the years, and the value they place on utilizing quality truckload services is apparent. A huge thank you to Penske for this recognition, as well as our employee-owners who show up daily to fulfill our vision and provide a top-tier service experience.”

For over a decade, Nussbaum has served Penske as a transportation supplier of choice. We look forward to our continued partnership and many safe miles ahead.
