Taylor, Michigan, April 12th, 2018 – Atlas Trucking Company, LLC was presented with a National Safety Award awarded by Great West Casualty Company as part of Great West’s annual National Safety Awards program.
The National Safety Awards program recognizes motor carriers in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year-end preventable crash results. Carriers are eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Participatory award.
Atlas was founded in 1999 by the Eaton Steel Company to be the premier steel carrier in the Midwest region. Atlas reached that goal and has grown to not only service Eaton Steel as a customer, but the group has also developed a customer base of their own within the Midwest market.
Atlas has grown from a few pieces of equipment to over 260. The fleet includes flatbeds, Conestoga’s, Covered Wagons as well as step deck and double drop Conestoga trailers. Atlas can move heavy haul, over dimensional as well as cross border shipments. Being a privately held company gives Atlas the advantage of taking care of their employees so they can in turn, take care of their customers.
Atlas Trucking Company implemented electronic logs on all their equipment a year in advance to the required date. Atlas takes safety very seriously, this is evident by the recent decision to implement in Cab Cameras Systems called Smart Drive in all the Company owned Trucks. These types of safety minded business decisions have helped give the company an advantage in cost management as well as developing In House Managed Safety Metrics. Atlas maintains a satisfactory DOT rating and because of the many Business policies and Safety Practices; Atlas’ Safety scores continue to reflect a positive downward trend; thus, the group was recently awarded a safety award by the Great West Casualty Insurance Company.
Atlas Trucking and Logistics would love to show your organization how we can support your companies shipping requirements.
