Freight Exchange Wins Top Safety Award from Great West Casualty Company

For top marks in safety F/X wins Platinum award

CHICAGO, IL. May 15, 2015 – Freight Exchange (‘F/X’), a Redwood company and asset-based truckload organization, announced today it received the Platinum award by Great West Casualty Company (‘Great West’) as part of the 2014 National Safety Awards Program.

“This award is a team accomplishment,” said Gary Lewis, President at F/X. “From our drivers, to operations and safety teams, we’ve made safety a number one priority throughout our entire business.”

The National Safety Awards Program recognizes carriers in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year-end preventable accident results. Carriers are eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Participatory award. This past year, the National Safety Awards Program drew over 750 participants from across the country.

“This isn’t an award where you get it once and then maybe win it again a few years later, we will strive to win this award year after year and prove ourselves as one of the safest carriers out there,” Lewis stated during the award presentation.

F/X currently has more than 270 trucks and 600 trailers and continues to grow its capacity in complex markets. F/X services include: regional and dedicated, over the road truckload, border transportation (McAllen and El Paso, TX), expedited hazmat in Southern California, last mile, cross dock (Southern California and Chicago, IL), and TOFC Intermodal.
