In business since 1932, Groendyke Transport has countless safety achievements in the tank truck industry. We are the only eight-time winner of National Tank Truck Carriers North American Safety Champion award for best overall safety program and record in the nation. We won our first in 1973 and our most recent was awarded in 2019. We’ve also won numerous American Trucking Associations safety awards, including Safety Director of the Year, and hundreds of state, insurance and industry awards for safety and service.
Our commitment is to the safety of our drivers, support personnel, customers and the motoring public, to make sure everyone goes home safely. Meeting this commitment requires effective processes, meticulous training and well-maintained, up-to-date equipment and technology.
We have a comprehensive, highly structured safety program enforced by our operations teams. Our safety team is dedicated to ensuring and exceeding DOT regulatory compliance. They undergo regular safety training and hold many safety certifications. They also assist with evaluating, training and observing our drivers to ensure safety compliance. We regularly use safety and maintenance field checks to eliminate accidents, injuries, and cargo losses, and maintain a high degree of professionalism among our drivers and terminal personnel.
Finally, the equipment and maintenance programs at Groendyke Transport produce impeccable results. Regular preventive maintenance and high standards of cleanliness have given our fleet a reputation for having clean, well-maintained equipment. Also, most tractors at Groendyke are on a five-year trade cycle to ensure our equipment meets our safety technology standards, such as collision mitigation systems, air disc brakes and lane-departure detection.
