The Alliance for Driver Safety and Security, or the Trucking Alliance, a coalition of carriers made up of some of the country’s largest trucking companies, has added Swift Transportation (No. 4 on the CCJ Top 250) to its roster of fleets.

“Swift Transportation is the largest full truckload carrier in the United States and its leadership team is one of the best in the business,” said Steve Williams, chairman and CEO of Maverick USA and Trucking Alliance president, “and so it’s gratifying that Swift will be part of the Trucking Alliance going forward, as we work to lower the number of truck accidents and improve highway safety, for our drivers and the general public.”

Swift President and CEO Richard Stocking will join the Alliance’s board of directors, and Swift Vice President David Berry will join the Alliance’s advisory group, which analyzes legislation and regulatory proposals.

Other fleet members of the Alliance include Cargo Transporters (No. 209), Dupré Logistics (No. 128), J.B. Hunt (No. 6), KLLM (No. 33), Knight Transportation (No. 24), Maverick USA (No. 76) and U.S. Xpress (No. 14).
