Central Freight Lines Inc., an LTL carrier and one of the largest intrastate carriers in Texas, has won the Texas Motor Transportation Association's Grand Trophy for Safety. CFL was up against seven other strong companies
that had earned TMTA First Place Safety Awards in different categories.
The Grand Trophy is awarded to the motor carrier that has the most complete and most effective safety program in Texas. After the judging of the eight carriers, TMTA announced Central Freight Lines has earned this honor.
This prestigious state level recognition has been earned by CFL three times within the last six years. The company has also won the American Trucking Association's top National Safety Award (the President's Trophy) four times within the past 20 years. Once a carrier receives this award, the carrier is automatically ineligible for consideration for the award for a period of four years.
