Southeastern Freight Lines, a leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, has been recognized as the 2020 Total Quality Logistics (TQL) Preferred LTL Carrier of the Year for the Southeast region.

TQL, one of the largest freight brokerage firms in North America, created the Preferred LTL Carrier Program to designate the highest-ranked LTL carriers for its customers. Southeastern earned “Preferred” status based on the market share it handles of TQL shipments in its network, on-time percentage, claims percentage and its technology integration capabilities throughout the year.

“Earning ‘Preferred’ status with a company that mirrors our commitment to exceeding customer expectations speaks volumes to the Quality Without Question service our team provides,” said Toby Toburen, national 3PL manager for Southeastern Freight Lines. “This recognition is a result of our growing partnership with TQL, and we look forward to continuing to share our expertise, merge our capabilities and enhance our results. The entire Southeastern team is grateful to be receiving this award.”

Southeastern is recognized as a Preferred LTL Carrier on TQL TRAX and featured on the TQL website. Toburen accepted the plaque from the LTL Carrier department at Total Quality Logistics.
