Heartland Express Inc. receives awards from FedEx Express

Heartland Express, Inc. has received two service awards from FedEx Express for fiscal year 2020 (June 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020).

Heartland Express has been awarded both the FedEx Express “Platinum Award for 99.96% On-Time Service” and “Core Carrier of the Year” award.

Heartland Express says it has received the “Carrier of the Year” award from FedEx Express thirteen times in the last fourteen years and now ten years in a row. Heartland Express has reached service levels at 99.96% on time, on more than 17,000 shipments during the year.

“To receive both of these awards from one of Heartland Express’ top customers for multiple years is truly an honor and speaks to Heartland’s motto of ‘Service for Success,’” said Heartland Express CEO Mike Gerdin. “This year specifically, was one of the most difficult and challenging years given the impacts of COVID-19 on our country. The truck drivers of America banded together to ensure critical shipments and the American supply chain kept moving at all times. The level of service that is represented by these awards was crucial for our nation during these uncertain times but is the same level of service that this partnership has delivered since 2002.”
