GPSNet Technologies of Windsor, Ontario has been awarded an "Outstanding Business Achievement Award" from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.  The award recognizes the company's contribution to the technical advancement of transportation companies in North America through use of GPSNet's Alliance Software modules.
 
From the OCC website:  "For the past 25 years, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) has placed a focus on the excellence and achievements of the businesses in Ontario.  Recent economic challenges push businesses to increased levels of dedication, innovation and perseverance.  The OCC awards are meant to recognize and 'celebrate the success' of the entrepreneurial spirit needed to start and successfully grow a business."
 
The award will be presented at a gala evening scheduled for Tuesday, October 23, 2007 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto, Ontario.
 
GPSNet President Stu Sutton says, "Winning this award is a tribute to the hard working employees at GPSNet Technologies and our many North American customers who share the vision of using our technology to make money by selling each others products (even though they all compete in the same market)."

    charlotte johnson-=|=-I am surprised noone has commented on the legalities of transferring freight to a vehicle that has no DOT license or insurance for covering customers cargo. I can assure you that if a owner or driver that is not a Panther CEO did the same thing they would find their lease terminated by the ver conscious safety and risk management department.


    Also imagine that bill coming out of the pocket of the person running that freight instead out of company pockets.

    It would be nice to see this grand experiment evolve into changing the attirudes of the management at Panther and perhaps even possibly becoming more driver/owner centric. We can all wait and see.

    John Expediter-=|=-Well well, Panther expedite finds out ho is for drivers on the road. Not to mention that you guys ( Panther) kept me in MN in -10 F ( and sleeping in the Sprinter ) for 24 hours while other Panther expediters where coming and leaving in under 4 hours from the same TA truckstop.

    Also ... when you sent a Sprinter to pick-up 22 pallets with medical shelving ... and the shipping department of that company in Ohia was about to have a heart attack ... lucky me I'm a smart guy , I figured out a solution for them. After that , all the way to L.A. you kept riding my ass that I'm going to be late and all that shit, and the consignee tells me ... you got here 24 hours earlier than expected.
    Imagine after 36 hours of driving and 3 hours of sleeping , how shitty that felt.

    Not to mention that I had to stay 4 days in Cali and not get a load , before I started heading back to Illinois.

    You are just a company that does whatever they want because it's big enough to scre the little guys.

    I'm happy I'm not working with you anymore. Since then I drive less and make more money.
