2006-11-14 Roehl Transport Named Nation’s Top Trucking Company for Loss Prevention

MARSHFIELD, WI—Shippers can relax when their freight is on board a Roehl Transport truck, according to the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) review of carriers’ claim records and loss prevention efforts. The Marshfield, WI based trucking company recently won the ATA’s top award for Excellence in Claims/Loss Prevention.

Open to motor carriers of all types and sizes, this prestigious national award pays homage to the company that sets the bar for claims management, loss prevention and damage control, ATA Executive Director Susan Chandler noted.

“Claim-free service goes hand-in-hand with Roehl’s industry-leading safety record,” President Rick Roehl said. The company’s flatbed division has been identified as one of the nation’s safest small fleets, while Roehl’s van fleet was also acknowledged as one of the best among large carriers. “Operating safely not only protects the motoring public and our drivers, it’s also a big part of delivering our customers’ freight safe and sound,” Rick Roehl said. “This award also complements our recent national accolades for industry- leading service,” he added.

In earning the award, Roehl demonstrated a leading loss-prevention program that results in less damage as well as faster, smoother claims processing when it does occur. “We believe our customers deserve that kind of service. In fact, we work very hard every day at being the best quality company in the business,” Rick Roehl said. “These awards, in so many different areas, attest to our commitment and the quality of our drivers and other employees,” he added.

Ranked among America’s one hundred largest trucking companies, Roehl provides truckload dry van, flatbed and curtainside service throughout the U.S. and Canada.
