The TMSA Trailblazer Awards showcase the very best of marketing and sales in the transportation and logistics industry. These awards push beyond recognizing the top campaigns but also the people behind the brand. As a trade non-profit in the transportation space, TMSA also highlights all the great work companies do to give back to their communities.
“The marketing and sales teams in the industry continue to blow me away with their diverse submissions,” said Courtney Keenan, TMSA Recognition Committee Chairperson and RLS Logistics Marketing and CX Manager. “This year, we are pleased to celebrate the success of 27 brands for blazing a trail at their companies or in their communities.”
The panel of judges, composed of industry professionals, awarded companies and individuals based on their outstanding achievements over the last 18 months. In addition to sales and marketing, submissions included recruitment, diversity, equity, and inclusion in this year’s winning submissions.
“Marketing and sales inside the transportation industry continues to evolve. TMSA is thrilled to honor the innovative thinkers whose campaigns include topics from content marketing to diversity, equity and inclusion to recruitment to everything in between and out-of-the-box,” said Jennifer Karpus-Romain, Executive Director at TMSA.
