ATA reorganizes 2 councils
Mar 27, 2009 2:27 PM
The Safety and Loss Prevention Management Council and the Security Council of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) have reorganized to form the Supply Chain Security & Loss Prevention Council and the Safety Management Council.
The reorganization recognizes the operational synergy between freight claims, loss prevention and security, as well as the singular, paramount focus of trucking’s safety professionals. It also reflects the expanded scope of today’s transportation security, asset protection and risk management professionals, which includes homeland security concerns like credentialing and emergency preparedness.
"Reuniting freight claims and loss prevention professionals with security professionals is a more logical fit," said Susan Chandler, executive director of the former and newly realigned councils. "Expanding and refocusing the scope of these councils will also help us more effectively meet the needs of these councils’ unique memberships, as well as the industry at large."
The ATA Supply Chain Security and Loss Prevention Council is dedicated exclusively to addressing, establishing, and advancing those policies and practices that achieve maximum security (supply chain, personnel, cargo, truck, facility, information, and the homeland) throughout the trucking industry; effective freight loss and damage control; cargo theft reduction; successful claims management; and secure, non-violent work environments. The council provides the information, forums, and tools that help keep its membership effective, efficient, and compliant, and programs that inspire excellence in claims/loss prevention and security.
The ATA Safety Management Council is the dedicated to advancing safe policies, practices, and technology, as well as effective risk management and accident/injury prevention in the trucking industry. The council also addresses trucking’s unique human resource challenges, health and wellness issues, as well as recruitment and retention strategies. It provides the information, forums and tools that help keep its membership effective, efficient and compliant, and programs that inspire excellence in safety and human resources.
