Two carriers won Volvo’s 2011 Trucks Safety awards. Roehl Transport, Inc. based in Marshfield, Wis., won the honor for the fleet with more than 20 million annual operating miles, and Stagecoach Cartage and Distribution, based in El Paso, Texas, won for the carrier with fewer than 20 million miles.
The recognition is based on the fleets’ accident prevention programs and a low accident frequency rate. All U.S. and Canadian carriers with more than five Class 8 trucks are invited to apply for the honor, which was given in two categories.
It pays to think ahead. That’s why Cummins is already testing prototypes featuring its 2017 ISX15 engine with Single Module aftertreatment. The 2017 ISX15 will have two clearly defined rating groups, one optimized for maximum fuel economy and the second with calibrations geared for customers who need higher performance.
