TCA's Fleet Safety Award Division Winners Announced Eighteen Trucking Companies Lauded for Outstanding Safety

Alexandria, Virginia:

The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) is pleased to announce the division winners of the highly-coveted 2005 National Fleet Safety Awards. The Truckload Carriers Association and the truckload industry are dedicated to improving the safety of all fleets and our nation's highways. The National Fleet Safety Awards recognize those companies who show a commitment to safety and accident reduction.

The National Fleet Safety Division Awards are determined by accident frequency per million miles driven in each of six mileage divisions (listed below). The top three division winners were selected and have been audited by an independent expert to verify their accident frequency numbers. Ratios per million miles for all division winners ranged from zero to .4100.

From the division winners two grand prize winners will be selected, one in the under 25 million mile category and one in the over 25 million mile category. To win the grand prize, companies will be judged on their overall safety programs, both on and off-highway including employee driver/independent contractor selection procedures, training, supervision, accident investigation, inspection and maintenance of equipment, and outside activities including general highway safety. The 2 grand prize winning companies will be announced on March 14, 2006 at the TCA annual convention at the Gaylord Palms Resort, Orlando, Florida.
