(Alexandria, VA) — The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) congratulates the 2015 AMSA Fleet Safety Award winners for their record of success as the nation's safest moving and storage company truck and van fleets. These annual awards recognize overall safety, improvement in safety, and creativity and leadership in safety program design.

  • 20-50 Million Miles: Wheaton|Bekins of Indianapolis

The Mileage Awards are based on annual miles traveled and presented to the interstate carrier in each mileage category that has the best weighted combination of the lowest U.S. Department of Transportation recordable accident rate per million miles of vehicle operation, and the lowest vehicle and driver out-of-service rate. An award is also presented to a single intrastate carrier that best meets the same criteria.

In addition, the Safety Improvement Award recognizes a carrier's successful efforts to reduce the incidence of accidents. The 2015 winner is American Van Lines of Elk Grove Village, Ill.

"The American Moving & Storage Association salutes these companies for their excellent record of safe vehicle operations," said Scott Michael, president and CEO of AMSA. "They have demonstrated a strong commitment to the highest level of safety for their customers and themselves in the past year. Their safety records represent a high level of achievement for the entire moving and storage industry."

Each year AMSA recognizes the industry's best performing and highest achieving individuals and companies in several categories. The 2015 industry awards will be presented during AMSA's 97th Annual Education Conference & Expo in New Orleans, March 20-23, 2016.
