This March, the Academy Sports + Outdoors account team flew to Katy, Texas, to accept an award that has never been given before! The team led by George Yates, Senior Vice President of Brokerage, was recognized as the Strategic Transportation Partner of the Year for their valued long-term partnership with Academy.
“The Covenant team has been a valued long-term partner to Academy and demonstrated that through one of the toughest freight markets ever experienced. In 2022, your team consistently delivered on the KPIs with on-time service in the mid-to-upper 90’s, a tender acceptance rate of100%, accurate and timely billing, and zero safety incidents.” Said Sheila Taylor, Vice President of International & Domestic Logistics at Academy Sports +Outdoors.
The good news doesn’t stop there, though. Beyond excelling on the KPIs, Covenant answered the call when Academy reached out with an SOS for unexpected gaps in their supply chain and was able to successfully meet the need in record time by investing in the right equipment and people needed.
“You invested in equipment and people to take care of our business and allowed us to take care of our customers. Because of that dedication and commitment, we look forward to scaling that business together.” Said, Sheila.
Being a large company means Covenant can provide many logistics solutions and create the best solution to fit your needs. Covenant always keeps its core values of Empathy, Servanthood, and Virtue at the forefront of everything. That means Covenant is large enough to fit your needs but small enough to continually show you the dedication to bettering your business.
Thank you to Academy for recognizing Covenant as Strategic Transportation Partner of the Year.
