Five Canadian carriers win TCA safety awards

by Today's Trucking

Five Canadian fleets are among the 18 division winners in the 46th annual TCA Fleet Safety Awards competition.

The Truckload Carriers Association awards identify truckload carriers that have demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to safety through presenting the lowest accident frequency ratios per million miles in each of six mileage-based divisions.

  • Of course Bison “wins” another safety award. See their equipment at least once a week involved in a wreck but they’re the safest out there. Lol. Think we need to stop using fleet size to rationalize incident numbers.
