A California-based small fleet and a Georgia-based single truck operator won ICSA’s 2022 overall annual safety awards. First-place winners of all 2022 quarterly awards competed for the annual awards. A&F Kings Transport (Louis Contreras), based in Riverside, CA, won the small fleet award. Nabi Trucking LLC (Momar Diarra), based in Fairburn, GA, won the single-truck operator award. These annual winners each received $1,000 cash and a cool trophy they’ll be proud to display in their home or office. Congratulations!

Comments can make a real difference in proposed regulations, especially when comments come packed with facts and data. But you are running a business. Who has time to follow federal rulemakings, read all those notices, and then write comments? You do... through your membership in ICSA.
FMCSA needs a well-run NCCDB to do its job just as much as trucking needs a functioning complaint mechanism to maintain integrity in transportation.
