CLEVELAND, Ohio - ContainerPort Group (CPG®) continues its strong start to 2022 garnering a position on the first-ever FreightWaves Top 500 For-Hire Carriers list. The list ranks companies based on tractor count, and CPG is listed 77th.

“It is really thrilling to be ranked so highly on this list,” said CPG President Joey Palmer. “Our entire team works incredibly hard to recruit and retain owner-operators. The field operations teams and the Driver Experience team work together to build relationships with owner-operators, making sure they feel like more than just a truck number. This has increased our retention, which in turn has reduced our turnover to near 70%. Given the climate that we are in with a sustained surge of freight, I could not be prouder of this accomplishment. Our efforts are paying off, and we continue to be a carrier of choice for owner-operators.  

FreightWaves included various trucking modes as part of its ranking. For example, there is no distinction between a flatbed carrier and an intermodal carrier. CPG’s primary offering is intermodal drayage and provides additional services across the nation. CPG utilizes its owner operator assets as well as an extensive network of partner carriers to provide unlimited capacity solutions that can flex with the ebb and flow of customer volume. A focus on growth has led CPG to launch Bristol Transportation, a trucking brand that offers additional capacity for customers. The company also continues to pursue and evaluate compatible acquisition opportunities. 

"COVID-19 has highlighted the massive role carriers play in our economy — delivering critical goods and supplies throughout the pandemic," said Craig Fuller, FreightWaves CEO and founder. "This list honors the companies and professionals that helped keep the economy rolling during some of the most challenging conditions in decades."
