ST. LOUIS Mayflower Transit, one of the nation's oldest and largest van lines, has been awarded the Fleet Safety Award by the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA).
The Fleet Safety Award is given to four carriers (the top carrier in four different mileage categories) that demonstrate the best weighted combination of the lowest Department of Transportation (DOT) recordable accident rate per million miles of vehicle operation, and the lowest vehicle and driver out-of-service rates. Mayflower was the winner in the 40 to 100 million miles category with a winning accident frequency of 0.732 per million miles.
Mayflower Transit, founded in 1927, transports household goods, in addition to electronic equipment, trade show exhibits and displays, works of art, and specialized freight, utilizing a network of 700 affiliated agents throughout the United States and around the world. Mayflower's headquarters offices are located in suburban St. Louis, Mo.
