MIDLOTHIAN, Va.- Getloaded, a leading Internet-based logistics freight matching site, was recently recognized by the Transportation Marketing and Sales Association (TMSA) as a recipient of one of its 60th Annual Compass Awards.
Getloaded received the Award of Merit in the TMSA's Diversity Campaign category for its development and launch of the United States' first Spanish-language load board. This is the first year TMSA has offered the diversity category, which was sponsored by the Women in Trucking Association to recognize best practices in reflecting diversity in transportation marketing.
“We’re deeply honored to be recognized by our transportation peers for developing services tailored to the Spanish-speaking demographic of our industry,” said Fergus Caldicott, general manager of Getloaded. “We recognize the economic importance of cultural diversity.”
Winners were independently judged by a panel of industry leaders and selected based on the detailed write-up of their marketing or sales campaigns and actual creative work samples.
"These winners represent the best and brightest in transportation marketing and sales and continue to set the bar for industry best practices," said David Hoppens, TMSA president. "Each year the entries exceed expectations and further illustrate the value of an organization like TMSA that provides its members with the resources and tools needed to take their companies to the next level."
All award recipients were honored during the annual gala following TMSA's Annual Conference and Expo in Hollywood, Florida.
