ATA Transportation Security Council Recognizes Fleets

Apr 27, 2024

Phoenix, Arizona – Today, American Trucking Associations’ Transportation Security Council recognized several extraordinary fleets for their commitment to trucking industry security and loss prevention efforts.

“Truck drivers deliver 72% of all the freight moved in the United States, and motor carriers and their employees take great pride in getting these shipments where they need to be safely and on time,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear.  “Unfortunately, the billions of tons of freight transported on the backs of trucks are a prime target for criminals, which is why security, including cargo theft and cybercrime, has now been added to ATA’s strategic priorities.  Our members are always striving to stay two steps ahead to safeguard their cargo, protect their drivers and partner with law enforcement. We commend these motor carriers who are going above and beyond to put security and loss prevention at the forefront.”

The winners were recognized at ATA’s 2024 Safety, Security & Human Resources National Conference & Exhibition in Phoenix, Arizona.

They include: 

  • ATA Excellence in Security: ABF Freight Systems Inc., Fort Smith, Arkansas;
  • ATA Excellence in Claims & Loss Prevention: Old Dominion Freight Line Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina

“On behalf of ATA and the Transportation Security Council, I want to congratulate these fleets for their efforts and commitment to security, claims, and loss prevention,” said TSC Executive Director Jacob Pierce. “These companies are leaders in our industry and a strong example of doing the right things for the right reasons.”
