On September 18, 2018, the Ohio Trucking Association named its 2018 Fleet Safety Awards winners. These organizations have upheld OTA’s mission to enhance the industry’s image through their commitment to safety while their drivers commute on our highways every day. Awards are sponsored by Great West Casualty Company and given on the basis of accident frequency ratios, which include data from the mileage and accidents reported to the Ohio Department of Transportation within a calendar year.
This year, the Small Division President’s Trophy was awarded to GetGo Transportation. GetGo Transportation, founded in 2001, and headquartered in Millbury, Ohio, provides premium regional truckload services and communication to clients in Ohio, Michigan, the larger Midwest, and the southeast and east coastlines. Anthony Tomase, owner of GetGo Transportation, has been a board member of the Ohio Trucking Association since 2017, sits on various committees, and serves on OTA’s Team 88.
The Large Division President’s Trophy was awarded to Walmart Transportation. Walmart Transportation, with its Ohio location in Grove City, delivers products to thousands of locations throughout the country by way of over 6,000 trucks. Since 2007, Walmart Transportation has delivered 830 million more cases of product while driving 300 million fewer miles in comparison to its previous operations, emphasizing the company’s dedication to not only Ohioan communities and workforces, but the wellbeing of our environment and preservation of our roads and bridges. Jonathan Gaupp of Walmart Transportation has served on the Ohio Trucking Association board since 2018.
