Our Commitment to Safety
We continuously strive for operational excellence designed to ensure that every driver, every truck, and every shipment arrives safely. We are proud that our efforts have kept work-sites and public roads safe. Our commitment is expressed in the following ways:
Support safety organizations. Whitewood actively supports the Motor Carriers of Montana, MCM Safety Maintenance and Management Council, and grass-roots programs such as Share the Road.
Monthly safety updates. We publish monthly safety updates in the Whitewood Wire. Topics highlighted include new legislation affecting safety standards and compliance, statistics and studies on transportation safety, as well as news concerning the efforts of local transport safety organizations.
Every driver at every stage of every shipment. Whitewood has earned regional and national recognition for safety in the trucking industry from Motor Carriers of Montana, Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association, and Great West Casualty Company. Our fleet won 1st place for zero accidents in the 750,000 to 1,500,000 Montana Miles category from Motor Carriers of Montana. Whitewood is also the proud recipient of the Motor Carriers of Montana and Great West Casualty Fleet Safety Grand Trophy award, the top honor for a Montana trucking company in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2016.
