Mill Creek Motor Freight has lots to celebrate this year. Not only is this the company’s 40th anniversary, but they have also placed first in the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Fleet Safety Award.
The 1st place award is in Division 2 (5-14.99 Million Miles) in TCA’s 45th Annual Fleet Safety Awards. A carrier’s annual accident ratio and a safety audit determine the rankings.
Mill Creek’s focus on safety has resulted not only in this award; the company recently achieved its lowest CVOR score in years. These milestones are the results of deep attention to detail to keeping drivers, freight and the public safe on the roads. The Mill Creek Safety department has built a comprehensive program that includes training, maintenance, supervision and monitoring above industry standards.
“We all share this award,” says Krista Murray, Safety and Compliance Manager, “drivers, mechanics and the operations team are all safety-minded. It’s always our first consideration.”
The award will be presented at the TCA Annual Convention in April 2021. Mill Creek is a finalist for the grand prize, also announced at the Convention.
