Louisville, KY… Mercer Transportation is pleased to announce the company received two safety awards during the 2017 Kentucky Trucking Association Conference. Along with its dedication to safe driving practices, Mercer Transportation maintains one of the lowest claims and accident rates in the industry.
“Every time we receive a safety award, it reflects on our contractors. We know we have some of the best Owner Operators out there,” Len Dunman, Safety Director for Mercer Transportation, said. “While I can encourage them to be safe and I can offer them guidance, the men and women out on the road have to be the ones to do it and it seems they have. I’m proud to see them recognized for their diligence.”
The Kentucky Trucking Association (KTA) presented Mercer Transportation with two distinct honors. The company received a first-place award in the flatbed division. Mercer Transportation also received the overall first place award for all truck divisions within the Kentucky Trucking Association. The KTA has over 300 members and serves as the voice of the Kentucky Trucking Industry. They work to “promote the trucking industry by educating governmental entities, the general public, customers and related industry groups, through advocacy, career development, and the support of value-added programs enhancing industry safety and productivity.”
“In a time when the Federal Motor Carriers Association has been reporting that large truck incidents are on the rise, Mercer Transportation is honored to know that our drivers are setting an example for safe driving practices,” Dunman said. “We appreciate the efforts of everyone working to make a difference and send our congratulations to all of the contractors that made these awards possible. Congratulations and…Go Mercer!”
