Chemical manufacturer Univar Solutions recently celebrated third-party logistics firm Mode Transportation as its 2023 Central Region Carrier of the Year. Mode received the award at the carrier kick-off meeting Aug. 3 in The Woodlands, Texas.

“We are incredibly proud to receive this award as it highlights the tremendous service and partnership our Mode Transportation agents provide to our shipping customers,” Mode Global CEO Lance Malesh said in a news release. “I’m thrilled that Mode has been recognized, especially by an industry-leading company such as Univar Solutions, but I’m even more excited to share this with our agents and front-line employees who are continuously prioritizing customer experience and raising the bar for service across the logistics industry.”

As a partner to Univar, a global specialty chemical and ingredient distributor, Mode provides over-the-road and less-than-truckload shipping solutions to Univar and its customers.

“At Univar Solutions, our purpose of keeping our communities healthy, fed, clean, and safe requires exceptional execution and alignment of core values with our transportation partners,” said Travis Vedral, Univar senior director of transportation systems and strategy. “Our partnership with Mode Transportation embodies our values of ‘serious about safety’ and ‘together we win’ and further supports their award of excellence as our Central Region Carrier of the Year.

“Thank you, Mode Transportation, for another outstanding year.”
