Brooks, Oregon-based May Trucking Company has accepted an invitation to join the Alliance for Driver Safety & Security, also known as The Trucking Alliance.
The Trucking Alliance is an industry-based safety advocate for reducing large truck crashes.
May Trucking delivers dry and temperature-controlled products throughout the U.S. and was noted for its focus on safety and technology. The carrier has received numerous safety awards, including recognition by the Truckload Carriers Association as one of its three largest carrier members with the lowest accident frequency ratio per million miles annually.
“The management and professional drivers at May Trucking Company are symbolic of a safety culture the trucking industry must adopt to improve the lifestyle of the American truck driver,” said Steve Williams, Trucking Alliance president and chairman and CEO of Maverick USA in Little Rock, Arkansas. “We’re honored that May Trucking Company accepted the Trucking Alliance invitation to affiliate and will join us in achieving policies to reach zero large truck fatalities.”
May Trucking president David Danels will serve on the Trucking Alliance board of directors, chaired by Williams and that also includes Reggie Dupre´ of Dupre´ Logistics, Eric Fuller of US Xpress, Kevin Knight of Knight-Swift Transportation, Craig Harper of JB Hunt Transport, John Pope of Cargo Transporters and Jim Richards of KLLM Transport Services.
Daniels will appoint experts from May Trucking Company management to serve on the Trucking Alliance Advisory Group, a committee that provides analysis and recommendations to the Alliance directors on proposed safety regulations, legislation and proposals. Greer Woodruff, senior vice president of safety, security and driver personnel at JB Hunt Transport, serves as chairman of the advisory group.
“We support the Trucking Alliance’s push for safety reforms,” said Daniels. “We look forward to helping the Trucking Alliance advance these reforms into policies that can reduce fatalities and improve highway safety for our employees and the motoring public.”
