Kenco Transportation Services was honored with the top safety award for its category in the annual competition sponsored by the American Trucking Associations, along with several other major ATA honors.

Kenco received the 2015 ATA President’s Trophy in the Under 25 Million Miles category. The award is given to a company judged most outstanding on the basis of its comprehensive safety program.

The ATA also honored Kenco with:
•  First place in the National Truck Safety Contest (General Commodities/Truckload/Line-Haul up to 10 Million Miles);
•  The Safety Improvement Award and the Division Improvement Award in the National Truck Safety Contest;
•  Plus, the ATA Safety Management Council recognized Kenco Manager of Fleet Safety Joe Smith with the 2015 Leadership Award and the 2015 National Safety Professional Award of Excellence for his leadership and contributions to motor carrier, highway, and workplace safety.

“This is a very prestigious honor due to the high-caliber and outstanding safety records of all the companies that entered the competition,” said Kevin Fletcher, Kenco’s senior vice president, Transportation.

“It is great to have not only our record, but also our culture of safety at Kenco recognized by the ATA.”

Mr. Fletcher said the No. 1 priority at Kenco is providing a safe and secure work environment for its employees, and reliable service to its customers. Since its founding in 1950, the company has taken a proactive approach to ensure safety is an integral part of its overall culture by investing in its people and technology. Kenco’s safety program encompasses training, coaching, driver incentive programs, peer reviews, and the use of high-tech safety features and other technology.

“Our customers rely on us for innovative solutions that lower transportation costs and improve customer service, but it all starts with safe driving on the road,” said Mr. Fletcher.
