Company News
Dayton Freight was Honored with Two Quest for Quality Awards We are humbled to receive two Logistics Management 2023 Quest for Quality awards. This is the fourteenth consecutive year we have been honored in the Midwest/North Central Regional LTL Carriers category. We were also recognized in the Expedited Motor Carriers category for the seventh time. Our on-time performance weighted score was the highest in this category. Each year, this award is voted on by Logistics Management magazine. The survey evaluates and measures transportation service providers across the nation utilizing criteria such as on-time performance, value, information technology, customer service and equipment and operations. We would also like to congratulate our partners A. Duie Pyle, Southeastern Freight Lines and Oak Harbor Freight Lines who won in their categories. It’s great to be a part of this recognition. Thank you to all our loyal customers for this honor!
