On March 14, 2016, Ross Transportation Services, Inc. (RTS) reached nine years with ZERO Lost Time Accidents!
This is the FIRST TIME they have reached this goal since they began tracking this metric. This means RTS traveled, on average, 2,740 miles per day over the past year maneuvering through many types of weather, road conditions and dealing with all types of drivers. This is all thanks to its world-class drivers, support staff of mechanics and its exceptional administrative professionals.
“I would like to congratulate and thank all the RTS associates for this accomplishment. They all have very important jobs and they choose to them safely. That takes constant focus and is extremely challenging given the work that they do. Whether servicing a truck, driving in poor weather, applying for permits. Of course the support that we receive from EHS is extremely important as well. Many thanks to all of you!”
– Bill Cromling III, President of Ross Transportation Services, Inc.
