CALGARY, Alta. — Trimac Transportation has earned the most prestigious award in the tank truck industry: The National Tank Truck Carrier’s (NTTC) Outstanding Performance Trophy for 2007. The award is based on an outstanding performance in both vehicular and personal safety and includes the existence of comprehensive safety programs, contributions made towards safety in the tank truck industry, and general highway safety.
“We have always prided ourselves on a safety-first focus,” said Jeff McCaig, Trimac chairman. “The NTTC awards are recognition that we are achieving that objective. The award certainly reinforces our core values.”
“I am very excited that Trimac is once again the recipient of the NTTC Outstanding Performance Trophy,” added Neil Voorhees, Trimac US director of safety services and security. “With the opening of our centralized training facilities, the focused effort on predictive modeling, and our efforts in making Trimac Transportation the Preferred Place to Work, I see nothing but continuous improvement in our future.”
Trimac was chosen from the 99 largest tank truck carriers in North America. The NTTC has four independent judges from different regulatory agencies review all entries to select the overall winner. Trimac has been a repeat winner in the highest mileage category for 10 of the past 11 years. The Outstanding Performance Trophy was last presented to Trimac in 2002.
The award will be presented at the NTTC annual conference in New York, N.Y. on May 19.
