TCA names National Fleet Safety Award winners

For the 34th year, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has announced the grand prize winners of its National Fleet Safety Awards. Erb International Inc of New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada, won the award for truckload companies in the small carrier division (total annual mileage of less than 25 million miles). Roehl Transport Inc of Marshfield WI won in the category for truckload companies in the large carrier division (total annual mileage of 25 million or more miles).

TCA presented the awards to Wendell Erb, general manager of Erb International, and Rick Roehl, president and chief operating officer for Roehl Transport, at the recent annual Banquet and Awards Dinner at the Wynn Las Vegas in Las Vegas NV. Both companies will be recognized a second time during TCA’s upcoming Safety & Security Division annual meeting, set for May 16-18, 2010, in Kansas City MO.

The two grand prize winners were selected from among 18 division winners in the National Fleet Safety Division Awards announced in January. In order to be granted the grand prize, both companies had to demonstrate that they strive to meet stringent standards in their overall safety programs, on and off the highway, and were judged to be the best in their commitment to improving safety on our nation’s highways.

Judging for TCA’s National Fleet Safety Awards began with the determination of the top companies in each of six mileage-based divisions. The division winners were selected based on accident frequency only.
