2nd place is Phoenix, AZ – Jim Giermek, Kenia Loera, Shane Schnelle and William Spiva
3rd place is Ottawa, Il – Jason Petkewicz, Kelly Jackson and Nan Davis.
Ryan Beard had this to say about the award: “I would like to take this time to personally thank each and every person that busted their hind tails to make this happen for Cardinal. I have said this before and I will say it again…you folks are the best at this in the industry; the dedication, attention to detail and your ability to outwork everyone else is unparalleled to every other carrier. Thanks again and hug those drivers, they make this happen as much as anyone.”
