Safety

At Colonial Cartage, we weave safety and loss prevention measures into every decision we make. Our mission is not only to hire highly qualified drivers, but also to provide every driver with the training and tools needed to get home safely at the end of their day or route. We train our drivers to consider not just what they see ahead but also to anticipate what may lie ahead. We make it our goal to meet and exceed FMCSA requirements and other safety standards to ensure that our freight, our drivers, and the general public have a safe journey out on the roads. Safety is a dynamic and multi-faceted consideration that affects our drivers with regards to:
  • How they operate daily within their available hours of service
  • The operating specifications of their equipment
  • The requirements of the transported cargo
To us, safety is more than a slogan or a breakroom banner. Safety is part of all of our decisions — from eligibility to accept a load and driver selection, to how our team handles unexpected issues that come up while en route. Colonial has been recognized for building a safety culture that engages, rewards, and requires accountability of both management and drivers.
