LSP Transport won in the Sutherland Division and Suttles Truck Leasing won in the Harvison Division.
LSP Transport of Bryan, Texas, won in the Sutherland Division, and Suttles Truck Leasing of Demopolis, Ala., won in the Harvison Division. The companies received their awards at NTTC’s 2021 Annual Conference and Exhibits in Indianapolis, Ind.
“Congratulations to the achievements of both Suttles Truck Leasing and LSP Transport,” said Ryan Streblow, NTTC’s president and chief executive. “This year’s contest was impressively competitive across all mileage classes; both of these operations should be extremely proud. Almost 75 percent of carriers in the contest had improved DOT frequencies over the previous year. With Heil’s continued support, we’re pleased to recognize the incredible safety performance of LSP Transport and Suttles Truck Leasing.’’
LSP Transport has 20 years of experience in the chemical transportation industry. The company, which had operated under a different name until 2015, became a wholly owned subsidiary of LiquidPower Specialty Products Inc. (LSPI) and is now a private fleet dedicated to delivering product for LSPI.
Suttles Truck Leasing, part of the Dana family of companies, was acquired in November 1999. Suttles operates more than 20 million miles annually, providing a wide variety of products and services ranging from hazardous commodity hauling to tank-wash facilities to equipment leasing.
NTTC represents more than 500 companies that specialize in transporting bulk or related services throughout North America. The tank-truck industry generates roughly 5.1 percent of all truck freight revenue, but that represents 30 percent of all truck freight in terms of tonnage due to the heavy nature of the liquid bulk products handled, according to NTTC.
