HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--National Tank Truck Carriers named LSP Transport, LLC (LSPT) the North American Safety Champion of the Sutherland division. NTTC’s annual award recognizes tank truck operations in North America with the best safety programs and records each year and represent the gold standard for safety in the tank truck industry. The NTTC is the only national organization that specifically focuses on the tank truck industry. The North American Safety Contest, which awards the Heil Trophy, recognizes North American tank truck operations which excel in nine different categories.
Joe Maple, LSPT HSE Manager, accepted the Heil Trophy stating: "these awards don't happen without a lot of work behind the scenes. We've got a great company…starting at the top. The most important to our success are our drivers –who buy into our culture, do the best they can to go home the same way they came to work…and take the extra time to do what needs to be done to make sure we do it safely. Without them, there's no way we could make this happen.”
