The award promotes the highest standards on fleet safety programs as well as the qualifications and performance of safety professionals in the commercial vehicle transportation industry.
The 2013 Fleet Safety Professional of the Year award was presented as part of the CTA's annual Fleet Safety Awards Banquet, held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento, Calif., on April 16, 2014. During the ceremonies, Reddaway was also presented with a third place award in the LTL/General Commodities Linehaul Over Seven Million Miles category.

"Although I've been in this industry for many years, I continue learning something new about safety every day," said Lococo. "I am always looking for opportunities to reach out to our employees and share safety information in a meaningful way."
Winners of the Fleet Safety Awards are chosen by an independent panel of judges who evaluate carriers across a variety of measures such as the organization of safety programs, training, driver supervision, preventative maintenance and an overall record of accident reduction.
