TCA Members Honored for Longevity
Schilli Transportation Services, Apgar Bros., Inc., and Online Transport, Inc., attain 50-year markLas Vegas, Nevada:
This morning, Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) recognized 19 of its members as part of an Ambassador Club ceremony honoring the longevity of the companies with the organization. Five of the companies were inductees, while the other 14 were recognized for reaching milestones in their membership tenures. The ceremony took place at TCA’s Annual Convention, which is being held from February 28-March 3, 2010, at the Wynn Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Three companies reached the 50-year mark: Schilli Transportation Services of Remington, Indiana; Apgar Bros., Inc., of Bound Brook, New Jersey; and Online Transport, Inc., of Greenfield, Indiana. These members received a crystal globe recognizing their long-time commitment to TCA.
New inductees and companies that moved up to the next level within the Ambassador Club received handsome plaques. RJW, Inc./Bestway Systems, Inc., of Independence, Ohio, was the senior member of this group, moving up to the category of 60 years of TCA membership.
“Our 2010 honorees have traveled a long road with TCA. Over the years, the knowledge and experience they have shared has been of great benefit to the industry, and helped to define our organization,” said Kevin Burch, TCA’s chairman and president of Jet Express, Inc., of Dayton, Ohio. “Their loyalty and commitment is very rare and should be applauded.”
TCA established its prestigious Ambassador Club in 1996 as a way to honor companies that maintain memberships with the organization for 25 years or longer. After their induction, companies are honored every 5 years for their ongoing commitment to TCA and their industry. Special recognition is bestowed when a company reaches the 50- or 75-year mark.
