Michaels Stores announced Blackhawk Transport as the 2020 New Carrier of the Year Award Winner at their Annual Carrier Conference on February 2, 2021.
Blackhawk Transport is thankful for this opportunity with Michaels at the New Lennox, IL DC and hopes to continue to grow with Michaels to other locations. As with many retailers, Blackhawk Transport knows and realizes that Customer On Time Service, Safety Performance, and having Surge Equipment, as well as additional Driver Resources are the keys to giving our Dedicated Retail Customers the competitive advantage they need to be successful in the marketplace.
“It was hard work by everyone on both the Michaels’ and Blackhawk’s startup teams. We went from Startup to full capacity within 3 weeks and were able to provide surge support up to 200+% for Michaels’ needs. This could not have happened without the hard work from the account manager, Justin Deppisch and his team.” says Jason Thomas, Midwest Regional Operations Manager.
Blackhawk Transport would like to thank Michaels for this opportunity and is looking forward to grow this partnership.
