Miller Transporters, Carbon Express earn Outstanding Safety Performance Awards from tank carrier group


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.
