The Louisiana Motor Transport Association recently recognized Dupré Logistics for outstanding achievement in highway safety within the state of Louisiana for the year 2007.

The award, which was sponsored by Great West Casualty Company, recognized Dupré's safety record as an asset-based logistics group in the 1-million to 3-million-mile trucking class.

Before issuing the annual award, the LMTA considers companies' motor vehicle accidents, plus Department of Transportation reportable accidents, and compares those numbers to millions of miles traveled.

The Louisiana Motor Transport Association represents approximately 400 truck, bus and related industry companies throughout Louisiana.
