Robinson Cartage Wins Two National Safety Awards

Grand Rapids, Michigan, July 7, 2008

Robinson Cartage Co. has been recognized for its safety performance with two national awards. The Grand Rapids-based provider of heavy-hauling transportation received two awards from the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association. Robinson Cartage:

  • Was one of only five transportation providers in the country to receive the Zero Accident Award for having no accidents in 2007
  • Was one of only 10 companies in the United States to receive the Fleet Safety Improvement Award for showing a reduction in accident frequency rate on a year-over-year basis

In both categories, Robinson was the only company from Michigan to be recognized. The Company logged approximately 2.1 million miles during 2007 with no accidents, compared with 2.2 million miles and two accidents during the preceding year. The awards are part of the trade association’s ongoing efforts to encourage its members to transport, lift and erect oversized or overweight items safely.

“We are pleased to be recognized again by SC&RA for our commitment to safety,” said David Scripps, president of Robinson Cartage. “These two awards demonstrate that our training efforts have paid off. We have one of the safest fleets on the road with an accident rate that is consistently well below the industry average.”
