Southern Champion Tray Awarded First Place at Tennessee Trucking Association Convention

October 10, 2022

Southern Champion Tray (SCT) was honored to accept the “First Place Fleet Safety Award for Private Carriers in the 0 to 1,000,000 miles” at this year’s Tennessee Trucking Association Convention.

This award is presented to the private carrier that drives less than 1,000,000 miles and has the lowest accident frequency for that year. Winning this award is achieved through teamwork and attention to detail. According to Matt Holmes, SCT Trucking Manager, “I would like to congratulate each person in the department, drivers, shop, and office for playing a role in winning this award. Every team member is a vital part of the safety chain, from the driver behind the wheel, the shop personnel ensuring the equipment is safe and legal, and the office for setting appointments in a manner that allows the driver proper time for driving and rest. This combination has allowed SCT to win this award multiple times, and we look forward to continuing the tradition that has been established.”

The SCT Truck Shop excels every day in ensuring the safety of its team members and the overall morale of a team that can be separated by thousands of miles. All of us at SCT would like to say a big “Thank You” to our Truck Shop, and we look forward to what they will accomplish next!

The SCT Truck Shop is comprised of 32 hard-working individuals in both Chattanooga, TN, and Mansfield, TX. Over the past 14 years, the Trucking Team has been awarded 16 awards for their outstanding work and leadership amongst Tennessee’s private carriers.
