Miller Transporters out of Jackson, Miss. and Carbon Express out of Wharton, N.J. will be presented with the National Tank Truck Carriers’ Outstanding Safety Performance Awards on April 24-26 at the group’s 68th annual Conference & Exhibits in San Diego.
NTTC enhanced the program last year to recognize two safety programs instead of one because the size of a fleet does not necessarily equate to approaching safety any less stringently. The mileage-based dividing line of the fleet size categories is 15 million miles.
Miller won their 31.5-40 million mile category with an accident frequency of 0.295 accidents per million miles. Carbon won in the 3.5-5 million miles class with an accident frequency rate of zero accidents per million miles. By winning their divisions, the companies were eligible for the overall awards.
