RTS Honored WITH DOT Highest rating
On Tuesday, March 19, Ross Transportation had their Department of Transportation audit. Out of four possible ratings, RTS earned the highest grade when it was awarded a "Satisfactory" rating by the United States Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Chris Fada, RTS Operations Manager said, "Each associate at RTS, as well as those that support us from Ross Environmental Services, Inc. and Ross Incineration Services, Inc. should be commended. The inspector was very impressed with our commitment to safety and compliance. I think the most impressive part of all this is the fact that we don't prepare for an audit when we are notified. We don't need to. The relentless commitment to safety and compliance means that we are always prepared."
