Ruan Named 2015 Volvo Trucks Safety Award Winner

Ruan Transportation Management Systems was awarded a 2015 Volvo Trucks Safety Award recently at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition in Philadelphia, PA. Ruan was honored for our exemplary safety record and training program and will receive $25,000 for future safety initiatives.

 “We are honored and proud to be recognized with the Volvo safety award,” said Lisa Gonnerman, vice president of safety for Ruan. “Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our professional drivers and protecting the motoring public around us. We are driven to be safe, and our programs demonstrate our safety focus.” 

 In the 1940s, Ruan became the first transportation company to introduce a formal safety program. Today, our robust Megasafe Safety Program includes a vast array of elements that allow us to have a Safety Focus in all that we do. Ruan’s Megasafe Safety Program is our overarching, comprehensive safety structure that drives mandatory quarterly safety training that all company drivers and terminal staff attend; customer and team member communications; content in newsletters, posters, bulletins and other safety materials; new driving training; boot and personal protective equipment (PPE) programs; and many other initiatives.

 Ruan drivers logged more than 246 million miles in 2014 and had an accident frequency rate of 0.61.
