Sisbro Receives National Safety Award for Second Straight Year in a Row
Happy National Logistics Day! We're especially proud to be presented with a Platinum National Safety Award by Great West Casualty Company today! This marks our second straight year of earning the highest safety award. We credit our drivers, with the support of our team, for this honor.
The National Safety Awards program recognizes motor carriers in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year-end preventable crash results.
Carriers are eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Participatory award.
We are proud to have earned the highest honor of a Platinum award for 2021.
This distinction is credited to our Drivers, with the support of our entire team.
The commitment to safety begins during orientation and continues through on-going training. Innovative safety initiatives such as Sisbro Bob Matter Moments create a safety-first culture. This mindset extends far beyond the Driver's seat to include Dispatch, Customer Service, and all our departments.
Great West Casualty Company corporate values state, "The character of our company is demonstrated by the daily actions of our employees and agents." Our team's daily actions prove safety is a top priority. Receiving this award for the 2020 trucking year is especially meaningful. Thank you to Great West Casualty Company, our whole Sisbro team, and our supporters for celebrating this accomplishment with us!

The business grew and, in 1990, we joined an organization to grow our customer base and take advantage of new technology. We kept the name Sisbro and still maintain our identity as a family business.
