Convoy Turns Six

Behind the Scenes, Convoy NewsPublished on April 1, 2021

Today is Convoy’s sixth anniversary, and what a year it has been. The past 12 months have been filled with unprecedented change affecting all aspects of trucking, life at Convoy and the day to day experiences of people around the world. It’s almost hard to comprehend.

We’re proud of the fact that we not only rose to the challenge, but we took on some of the most daunting problems our industry has ever faced. Working closely with our shippers and carriers, we partnered with Salesforce to deliver PPE supplies and testing swabs to healthcare workers, quickly, seamlessly and free of charge during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, all while keeping an overburdened supply chain moving efficiently and eliminating empty miles and carbon emissions from our nation’s highways.

We’re also proud that in our first six years, Convoy has helped solve some of the most pressing problems facing truck drivers and shippers alike. That would not have been possible without the partnership of our first six shippers: Guided Products LLC, ACF West Inc., World Vision, Beckwith & Kuffel, Northwest Linings and Geotextile Products, Inc. and Pipe & Piling Supplies Ltd. 

To all of our shippers, the carriers and our broader community, we thank you for being an important part of Convoy’s journey in this extraordinary year. We wouldn’t be here without our network, and we can’t wait to see what new problems we solve together on the road ahead.
