The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has named Sinclair Trucking Co, Salt Lake City UT, as its small fleet winner in the 2004 National Truck Safety Contest.
Sinclair Trucking, a petroleum carrier and division of Sinclair Oil Corp, was judged to have the best overall safety programs and records of safety initiatives among contest entries in its category.
The trophy award, sponsored by Great West Casualty Company, recognizes fleets with the highest records of safe operation and the best programs to promote safety throughout the trucking industry and among all highway users and the general public.
The Utah carrier represents carriers with less than 25 million operating miles annually and has 126 local drivers in its Salt Lake City operating area.
"Sinclair requires good safety practices through all levels of the company," ATA said. "Managers are required to do twelve ride-alongs with drivers each year to both observe and learn proper safety practices. In addition, any perceived need for safety re-training is granted, no questions asked."
Products hauled by the carrier include gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, fuel oil, propane, and asphalt.
