WASHINGTON — May Trucking Company, headquartered in Brooks, Oregon, has accepted an invitation to join the Alliance for Driver Safety & Security, also known as The Trucking Alliance, an industry-based safety advocate for reducing large truck crashes.

In business for 75 years, May is a consistent leader in safety and technology improvements, according to Steve Williams, Trucking Alliance president and chairman and CEO of Maverick USA in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The carrier has received numerous safety awards, most recently in 2018, when the Truckload Carriers Association named May Trucking Company as one of its three largest motor carriers with the lowest accident frequency ratio per million miles annually; a recognition May Trucking Company has received consistently over the past two decades.
“The management and professional drivers at May Trucking Company are symbolic of a safety culture the trucking industry must adopt to improve the lifestyle of the American truck driver,” Williams said. “We’re honored that May Trucking Company accepted the Trucking Alliance invitation to affiliate and will join us in achieving policies to reach zero large truck fatalities.”
“At May Trucking Company, we strive each day to create a safe work environment for our drivers while offering continuously improving efficiencies for our customers,” said David Daniels, May Trucking Company’s president. “We support the Trucking Alliance’s push for safety reforms,” Daniels added. “We look forward to helping the Trucking Alliance advance these reforms into policies that can reduce fatalities and improve highway safety for our employees and the motoring public.”
Daniels will serve on the Trucking Alliance Board of Directors, chaired by Williams and that also includes Reggie Dupre´ of Dupre´ Logistics, Eric Fuller of US Xpress, Kevin Knight of Knight-Swift Transportation, Craig Harper of JB Hunt Transport, John Pope of Cargo Transporters, and Jim Richards of KLLM Transport Services.
Daniels will appoint experts from May Trucking Company management to serve on the Trucking Alliance Advisory Group, a committee that provides analysis and recommendations to the Alliance directors on proposed safety regulations, legislation and proposals.
Greer Woodruff, senior vice president of safety, security & driver personnel at J.B. Hunt Transport, serves as chairman of the Advisory Group.
May Trucking Company was founded as a small regional carrier in 1945, and has grown and adapted to serve the needs of premier customers throughout the United States. May Trucking Company cultivates a culture of safety and development in every aspect of business, and is a recognized trailblazer in accident-free miles and developing partnerships to foster innovation.
