Five Canadian carriers among TCA Fleet Safety Award winners

by Today's Trucking

Five Canadian carriers are among the 18 division winners in the 48th annual Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) Fleet Safety Awards competition.

Elgin Motor Freight, Erb Transport, Challenger Motor Freight, Trans-West Logistics, and Bison Transport represented Canada among the division winners.

The awards recognize truckload carriers that exhibit an exceptional dedication to safety by achieving the lowest accident frequency ratios per million miles within six mileage-based divisions.

“The submissions for this year’s Fleet Safety Awards were quite impressive, and we are proud of our members who invest in safety technology and training to enhance safety on our nation’s roads” said Jim Ward, TCA president. “I look forward to sharing the success of these 18 carriers in March at TCA’s Annual Convention.”
