Coyote Logistics is extremely proud to announce that for the second consecutive year, The Home Depot has named us among their ‘Best of the Best’ suppliers and awarded us the distinction of Third-Party Logistics Provider of the Year.
This award, created by The Home Depot to acknowledge their suppliers who go above and beyond to provide consistent service, was announced in January.

Coyote and The Home Depot team have a relationship that goes back almost a decade. Early on, we worked with them on critical spot, backup and hurricane support.
To this day, we continue to help The Home Depot when extreme weather hits — such as disaster relief driven by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma — which required that supplies and critical construction materials to be stocked in stores around the affected areas.
Multi-modal Solutions for Continuing Growth
As their hurricane response efforts have grown, so has the support that Coyote has provided across their supply chain.
According to James Jacobs, Vice President of Sales at Coyote, “We are constantly evolving with their business. As they grow, we continue to support that growth by helping to adapt their supply chain."
Since we have started working together, Coyote has expanded from transactional truckload to multi-modal solutions — supporting everything from private fleet to flatbed.
“We challenge each other to do better. If they need support on-site at their Hurricane Command Center, we’re there to help 24/7.
If there is an issue somewhere in their supply chain, we work with them to help resolve it and find a better solution for next time.”

A Record of Award-Winning Service
It’s because of this service, that The Home Depot has honored Coyote with this ‘Best of the Best’ distinction.
Over the years, Coyote has been recognized across the industry as being a global leader in third-party logistics (3PL), but it’s the awards from our network customers (and carriers) that truly mean the most to us.
We prioritize building and maintaining relationships, which also means prioritizing a high level of service and expertise.
As customer demands continue to increase the speed and complexity of the freight industry, we will continue to provide not just capacity support across modes, but also the data intelligence and custom solutions needed to support the growth of our shippers, like The Home Depot.
We’d like to thank The Home Depot for honoring us among their top suppliers of 2018, and for the years of work we’ve proudly accomplished together.
