The Council presented the awards at its recent Supply Chain Security 2010 conference and exhibition in Fort Worth, Texas.
The ATA Excellence in Security Award is given to the motor carrier best demonstrating its ability to evaluate the risk, implement the plans, apply the tools, train the personnel and manage the systems and processes to successfully minimize theft and secure its supply chain.
"Schneider National is being recognized for its comprehensive and effective security policies, procedures, plans, programs, and training; its commitment to constantly reevaluating and controlling risk; its innovative approach to traditional and homeland security challenges; its extensive emergency response protocols and programs; its successful record of securing the supply chain; and its contributions to national transportation security," said Warren Hoemann, ATA senior vice president.
Knight Transportation's Martin received the SCS&LPC Leadership Award for his devotion to helping secure the supply chain both for his company and for the industry.
"As a long-time active member and current National Chairman of the SCS&LPC, Rick has provided expert guidance and support to law enforcement and security professionals, addressing both cargo theft and homeland security issues," said Susan Chandler, SCS&LPC executive director. "Through the Council and his involvement in regional cargo theft task forces, he has been instrumental in mobilizing the collective wisdom and resources of motor carriers, shippers and law enforcement to fight crime and secure the supply chain nationally."
