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.

“The restrictions brought on by COVID-19 have highlighted the essential work and critical role that tank trucks play in our nation’s economy,” said Jackson. “The industry has kept North America moving, and companies like Dupré have kept the roads safe while making sure that the needs of Americans are met.”
