LAFAYETTE, La. — Dupré Logistics was recently recognized for its outstanding safety record by National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC), an industry champion for transportation safety on America’s highways.
Dupré, which is categorized into NTTC’s 40-90 Million Miles class, was honored with the Merit Award in the Competitive Safety Contest for 2019. Additionally, the company earned the Grant Award in the Personnel Safety Contest for 2019.
“These awards magnify the ongoing efforts of our team to make Dupré an industry leader in safety,” said Al Lacombe, vice president of safety and risk management. “Dupré provides quality service while promoting and maintaining a culture of safety at every level.”
For more than 30 years, NTTC has honored carriers and fleets for meeting safety goals.
In his congratulatory letter to Dupré, the organization’s chairman, Kevin Jackson, said the company’s achievements are even more meaningful during the current pandemic.
