Con-way Freight received a first-place fleet safety award at the Tennessee Trucking Association’s annual convention. The less-than-truckload carrier and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. announced that it was recognized by TTA in the Less-Than-Truckload 15 Million Miles and Over category for its safety record and practices.
The awards were presented at TTA’s 78th annual meeting, held at the Sandestin Hilton Resort in Destin, Fla. “It is a pleasure to honor Con-way Freight with this award,” says Dave Huneryager, TTA president and chief executive officer. “Con-way Freight is known for its commitment to safety, and its drivers here in Tennessee exemplify that dedication.”
Winners were selected based on miles driven, types of driving, number of accidents and other safety indicators. Awards were given out across eight categories in the Truckload, Less-Than-Truckload and Private Carrier divisions.
“So far, 2008 has been an award-winning year for Con-way Freight drivers across the country,” says John G. Labrie, president of the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based company. “Their efforts to keep safety top-of-mind enables the company to meet customers’ needs and continue to provide outstanding service. We thank all of the drivers in Tennessee for their hard work and contribution to our success.”
TTA, based in Nashville, represents more than 450 trucking companies and allied industry members and is the official voice of the trucking industry in Tennessee.
