When it comes to safety, these truckload carriers simply can’t be beat Kissimmee, Florida:
Last night, as the Truckload Carriers Association wrapped up its Annual Convention at the Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee, Florida, two fleets were named the safest truckload carriers in North America. FTC Transportation, Inc. (FTCT), of Oklahoma City, and Bison Transport of Winnipeg, Manitoba, are the 2014 grand prizewinners of the prestigious contest, sponsored by Great West Casualty Company.
FTC Transportation, Inc., represented by Travis Arnold, president, won the award for truckload companies in the small carrier division (total annual mileage of less than 25 million miles). Bison Transport, represented by Rob Penner, executive vice president and COO, won for truckload companies in the large carrier division (total annual mileage of 25 million or more miles). Both companies will be recognized again during TCA’s Safety & Security Division Annual Meeting, to be held May 3-5, 2015, at the Charlotte Westin in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“In the trucking industry, safety is our highest objective. Therefore, earning one of these two grand prizes is an extremely important and enviable achievement,” said Brad Bentley, TCA’s president. “We want to showcase the incredible safety programs that these fleets demonstrate so that other carriers can strive to do the same.”
