Honored for safely serving customers!

LTL Safety AwardsFrom the twists and turns of the Rockies to the congestion of West Coast cities, Reddaway drivers travel some of the most dangerous highways in the nation.

That's why we are particularly pleased when we receive recognition for our safe driving.

Recently, two different state trucking associations honored Reddaway with their 2009 highway safety awards.

The California Trucking Association (CTA) presented Reddaway a third-place award in the LTL Short-Haul, Over Four-Million Miles category at its Fleet Safety Awards Banquet on April 7.

On March 26, the Colorado Motor Carriers Association awarded Reddaway third place in the "Fleet Safety for LTL Carriers Over Three-Million Miles" category.

At Reddaway, we take highway safety seriously. It is integral to our customer service, helping ensure our people and your shipments arrive on time and in good shape at shipping docks. It's also the right thing to do as we share the roads with the driving public.

We are extremely proud of our professional drivers in California, Colorado and throughout our Western-states geographic footprint. As our president, T.J. O'Connor, says, "Ensuring that we're working and driving safely is the foundation by which we deliver confidence to one another and our customers every day."
