Total Quality Logistics Earns Top Transportation Security Award
Cincinnati, OH (August 10, 2020) – Total Quality Logistics (TQL), the nation’s second largest freight brokerage firm, has won the “Best in Cargo Security” Award for 2019 from CargoNet, a trucking industry organization whose mission is to help keep freight secure from pickup to delivery. TQL won this award, its third, in the Larger Broker/Intermediary Category for its exceptional cargo theft prevention efforts.
Considerations in winning this award included:
- TQL’s documented security plan for in-transit cargo
- The company’s process for communicating theft trends and best practices, protocols and contingency plans for unexpected delays on the road and when carrying high-value cargo
- TQL’s utilization of the CargoNet theft deterrent program
“Our value proposition as an industry leading logistics provider includes leveraging every resource available to us to have our customers’ cargo delivered timely and safely,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne. “Our partnership with CargoNet is critical to reduce the overall risk of theft and increase the chances of recovering any product if a theft does occur. Our internal teams work very hard to protect our customers’ freight, so this award is recognition of those efforts,” Byrne added.
CargoNet’s member base consists of manufacturers, carriers, retailers, freight brokerage firms, insurance companies and law enforcement to deliver a national information-sharing system to combat cargo theft. The system focuses on aggregating and sharing information and intelligence from multiple police agencies, task forces and the industry.
Throughout the year, TQL regularly communicates with shippers and carriers, providing tips and advice on the latest trends in prevention and recovery methods, and the latest tactics used by cargo thieves. CargoNet also honored TQL with its “Best in Cargo Security” award in 2013 and 2017.
