Central Freight Lines announced it is again being honored by the Texas Motor Transportation Association for its achievement in reaching and maintaining the industry’s highest safety standards in the State of Texas. TMTA will present Central Freight Lines with the 1st place P&D Division Fleet Safety Award along with 1st place Intercity 10-20 million miles class award in August.
Each year TMTA recognizes the drivers of member companies that accomplished outstanding professional driving performance within the trucking industry. The winners are judged by the company’s lowest overall accident frequency experience rates.
“Our drivers are committed to safety awareness, professionalism and customer service, which is reflected in our repeat award-winning performances each year,” says Don Orr, president and chief executive officer of Central Freight. “Texas is our home base, and we are all proud to be a carrier that consistently promotes safety throughout the company, ensuring a safe environment for those traveling on Texas highways. Our focus is both a safe and clean initiative that sets Central Freight apart from other carriers. We are committed to testing compressed natural gas tractors that are being added to our fleet next month in an effort to improve air quality in the areas where we operate, specifically here in Texas.”
Central Freight Lines will be presented plaques in recognition of their achievements at the TMTA Annual Conference Safety/Maintenance Award Luncheon in San Antonio on Aug. 2. As the winner of a class of competition, Central is eligible to compete for the coveted Grand Trophy, which will be awarded at that time.
