OTA and CTA carrier member, Bison Transport, won the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) National Fleet Safety Awards.
The grand prize award, which was announced at the TCA’s annual convention in Kissimmee, Fla., went to Bison Transport for the large carrier division (over 25 million miles). FTC Transportation Inc. (FTCT) of Oklahoma City was named the winner in the under 25 million mile category.
Both carriers were found to have extensive safety programs with company cultures that emphasized safety and incentives encourage participation.
“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 president. “We want to showcase the incredible safety programs that these fleets demonstrate sot that other carriers can strive to do the same.”
The winning companies had to demonstrate that they strive to meet standards in their safety programs both on and off the highway and were judged by their commitment to improving safety.
