ATA’s Safety Management Council announced its 2011 award winners at its Safety & Human Resources National Conference & Exhibition in Albuquerque, N.M. last weekend.

The ATA President’s Trophy recognizes the three companies whose fleets have been judged to have the best overall safety programs from the Truck & Industrial Safety Contests. These Contests, which have been conducted for over 50 years, judge motor carriers from across the United States on their safety accomplishments and safety records relative to others within their operation type and size.  The top three ATA President’s Trophy recipients are honored for their superior safety achievements, outstanding commitment to industry-wide safety and extensive promotion of safety among all highway users.
