SPRINGFIELD, VA, February 1, 2013 – Interstate Van Lines is pleased to announce that it has once again been named the winner of an annual Fleet Safety award by the American Moving and Storage Association. For the third consecutive year, the company has received the honor in the category for fleets with a total annual mileage under five million miles during 2012. Interstate will accept the award at AMSA’s Education Conference & Expo in Atlanta in early March.
 
“Winning this prestigious award confirms that safety and quality service are among Interstate’s top priorities, and is evidence of our unwavering commitment to keeping those with whom we share the road, our customers, and our drivers safe,” says John D. Morrissette, president of Interstate Van Lines. “We uphold our drivers to the highest standards, and I know I speak for all of our team when I say that we are proud to accept this award,” adds Morrissette.
 
Interstate was matched with other similar-sized carriers and judged on seven driver behavior categories from AMSA, the only national trade association for the moving and storage industry: Unsafe driving, Fatigue driving, Driver fitness, Controlled substance and alcohol, Vehicle maintenance, Cargo related, and Crash indicator. Interstate ranks among the overall best in each AMSA category, and has the best safety record among all categories.
 
As Interstate enters its 70th year in business this year, the company will continue to strive to meet and surpass industry requirements for safety.
