During their first annual carrier recognition event in Watsonville, California, Driscoll’s announced that C.H. Robinson was named, “2014 Carrier of the Year.”  During the event, Driscoll’s supply chain executives presented awards to a select group of carriers based on their ability to consistently exceed Driscoll’s expectations as well as demonstrate understanding of Driscoll’s vision, mission, and values through their daily work.  C.H. Robinson was applauded for consistent execution and alignment to a strategic vision.

When Western Growers and C.H. Robinson established the WG/CHRW Transportation Program in 2006, a key feature of the program was how potential loss and damage claims would be handled.  The program specifies that C.H. Robinson assumes liability for proven logistics related to loss and damage on all shipments transported with its carriers -- meaning that shippers file and resolve claims with CHR instead of the underlying carrier.  Upon proof of carrier liability C.H. Robinson settles with the shipper immediately and deals with the carrier after the fact. This feature has provided shippers with timely and efficient resolution of claims.
