MARSHFIELD, Wis., September 14, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Roehl Transport has won an unprecedented 4th President's Trophy from the American Trucking Associations (ATA). The prestigious award, which is given annually to the trucking company that is judged most outstanding on the basis of safety record, programs and community outreach solidifies Roehl Transport as one of North America's safest, largest and most successful trucking companies.
On Sept. 9, 2021, CEO Rick Roehl, John Spiros, Roehl Transport's Vice President of Safety and Claims Management, and Adrian Wheeler, Roehl's Safety Director, accepted the award on behalf of all Roehl teammates during the ATA's Safety Management Council's Safety, Security & Human Resources National Convention held in Indianapolis, Indiana.
"At Roehl Transport, safety is our cornerstone value," Spiros shared. "I'm so proud of our team's commitment to safety and to driving the Roehl Way to Protect Others."
The ATA President's Trophy is the trucking industry's top honor, and it recognizes the best trucking companies in three categories: fleets Under 25 Million Miles, fleets between 25 to 100 Million Miles, and fleets with Over 100 Million Miles. Roehl won in the Over 100 Million Miles category. To be eligible for the award, companies must submit thorough safety data that is independently verified, and they must finish in the top three for safety results. The top three are then evaluated by leading motor carrier safety professionals and commercial enforcement personnel. Roehl Transport has finished in the top three for safety results every year since 2003 and in 2008, Roehl was the first truckload carrier to win the President's Trophy. Now, with four awards, Roehl Transport is the only truckload carrier to have won the President's Trophy multiple times.
"Year-after-year and mile-after-mile, our teammates bring our value of safety to life," Spiros continued. "Winning the ATA President's Award for the fourth time reinforces that our drivers are leaders."
Roehl Transport offers careers for all levels of truck drivers, from experienced truck driving jobs with the industry's best mix of pay and home time, to on-the-job paid CDL truck driver training for those who are just starting out, to a wide variety of non-driving jobs to support the company's driving teammates. Headquartered in Wisconsin, the company also has major terminal locations in Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan and Texas and provides transportation and logistics services to customers across North America.
The ATA is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry, representing thousands of trucking companies. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking associations and industry-related conferences and councils, the ATA is the voice of the industry America depends on most to move our nation's freight.
