Gooding, Idaho - September 01, 2012
D&D Transportation Services, Inc., a nationwide transporter of refrigerated and dry-goods for food-grade products, is proud to announce it was recently honored by the Idaho Trucking Association (ITA) for a superior safety record and safe driving practices. D&D received the distinguished Grand Trophy Award for outstanding achievement in highway safety in the 1-3 million Idaho miles division. The award was presented last month at the ITA’s 78th Annual Convention at the Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho.
“D&D’s fleet traveled 1,559,402 Idaho miles without any accidents from April 1, 2011 thru March 31, 2012.” said Kathy Fowers, president, Idaho Trucking Association. “Congratulations to D&D Transportation Services on this great accomplishment and their commitment to safety first.”
Winners of the Grand Trophy Award for fleet safety are selected based on several factors, including miles driven in Idaho, types of driving, number of accidents and other safety indicators. Sponsored by the Great West Casualty Company, one of the largest insurers of trucking companies in the United States, it is presented to a company who not only runs accident free miles, but also exemplifies good safety scores and is actively involved with different safety programs within the community.
“Winning this award is a tribute to our drivers focus on safety and the commitment of the personnel that support them.” said Jennifer Graves, vice-president of D&D. “Safety is D&D’s number one priority. We believe safety is an attitude and a choice–it guides every decision we make.”
