Landstar Receives Top Recognitions from TCA

For the fifth consecutive year, Landstar received top honors and was recognized among the “Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For,” during the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) 2016 Annual Convention. Landstar Vice President of Safety and Compliance Mike Cobb attended the convention, held March 6-9 at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort.

“Landstar was honored to receive TCA’s National Fleet Safety Awards again this year.  We were pleased to also receive an exclusive honorable mention of being the only large fleet named in the ‘Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For’ for five consecutive years,” said Cobb.

Landstar was also honored with two National Fleet Safety awards during TCA’s convention. Among 17 trucking companies to earn National Fleet Safety Awards, Landstar was recognized in the Division II 5-14.99 million miles and the Division VI 100+ million miles categories. Division winners were selected based on their accident frequency per million miles, as verified by an independent audit.

This is the eighth year of the TCA survey which is open to all U.S. and Canadian fleets that operate 10 or more trucks. To be considered, fleets must be nominated by one of their drivers, either a company driver or an owner-operator.

“Landstar’s owner-operators help make Landstar an industry leader by providing excellence in safety and service. We are proud that the owner-operators leased to Landstar feel they have freedom, opportunity and the support services they need to successfully run their own businesses,” said Landstar Executive Vice President of Capacity Development Rocco Davanzo.TCA mar8_2016-8835
