ArcBest’s less-than-truckload carrier, ABF Freight, has won the 2021 Excellence in Cargo Claims and Loss Prevention Award – LTL Division from American Trucking Associations. ABF is the first nine-time winner of the award which is presented annually to one motor carrier in the LTL division and one in Truckload division.
The only national award of its kind in the trucking industry, the award identifies companies setting the standard for claims management, loss prevention and damage control that have mastered negotiation, inspection and investigation; perfected claims filing and processing; and eliminated, minimized and recovered loss above and beyond all others.
“Year after year, ABF sets the bar when it comes to claims prevention. Through our ‘We’ll find a way’ mindset, we’re focused on getting the job done for our customers safely and efficiently, every time,” said Seth Runser, ABF Freight president. “We have a long history of consistently looking at our business through our customers’ eyes and making improvements to help ensure shipments arrive safely. We’re especially grateful to receive an award that recognizes our longstanding commitment in these areas.”
The ATA is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. The ATA announced the award April 28 at its annual Safety, Security & Human Resources National Conference, held in Orlando, Florida.
