Reddaway receives safety recognitions
Reddaway has been expanding on its reputation for safe, reliable service in its operating area.
We received two Fleet Safety Awards from the California Trucking Association earlier this year, and Reddaway has also received safety awards from the Utah Trucking Association and the Oregon Trucking Associations.
Reddaway was honored with a first place award for both Industrial Safety for General Commodities and the Great West Safety Award for less-than-truckload carriers for miles run and hours worked in Utah in the calendar year 2012 by the Utah Trucking Association.
The Oregon Trucking Associations presented Reddaway with the first place award for safe operations bestowed each year to the carrier with the lowest accident ratio per million miles driven in the state as measured by the Dept. of Transportation, in the common carrier LTL category, with more than three million incident-free miles.
Awards like these recognize the strong safety focus of Reddaway transportation professionals and promote safe operating practices throughout the industry. "This is a terrific validation of our employees' commitment to safety," said Dave Yonemoto, Reddaway Director of Safety. "Safety is its own reward and our first concern is simply that every Reddaway employee returns home healthy and injury-free at the end of his or her workday. It is gratifying to have the outstanding safety performance of the Reddaway team recognized by industry peers."

“We often use Reddaway's Guaranteed Service because of some of the high value products that we ship,” Mr. Gonzalez continued. “And having an extra set of eyes that we can trust on the shipment gives us added confidence.”

Reddaway reigns at state driving competitions
Earlier this month, two Reddaway professional drivers took first place trophies in separate state truck driving competitions. Scott Colwell (Boise, ID) won first place honors in the sleeper class at the 2013 Idaho State Truck Driving Championships, and Jeff Payne (Salt Lake City, UT) placed first in the twin trailers class at the 2013 Utah State Truck Driving Championships.
With these wins, both drivers now qualify to participate in the 2013 National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC)—the “Super Bowl” of truck driving--this August in Utah!
Both Scott and Jeff have participated in truck driving competitions over the years, and both have amassed plenty of trophies. Scott has been competing in truck driving competitions for the past 13 years. He earned first place in the Idaho state driving competitions on three separate occasions--twice in the 3-axle class (2007, 2009), and once in the sleeper class (2012). Scott has been in the transportation industry for 26 years, and has spent 21 years as a local pickup and delivery driver out of the Reddaway Boise facility.
Jeff's host of accomplishments include 12 first place trophies in the state of Utah, and first in the nation in 2011. He has also been the proud recipient of the Utah State Grand Champion Award in 2003 and 2011. Jeff has been in the transportation industry for 26 years, and has spent 19 of those years with Reddaway. He now operates as a pickup and delivery driver out of Salt Lake City.
To qualify for these state events, each driver must go the entire year prior without a single accident. These safety superstars are truly all stars. Through dedication and commitment to both safety and their craft, Scott Colwell and Jeff Payne have become true champions! Congratulations on the big wins, and best of luck at NTDC!
