Los Angeles, CA – May 22, 2008 – Ventura Transfer Company (VTC), a pioneer in the bulk transloading and distribution of products shipped throughout the United States, was awarded First Place for Intermodal Safety by the California Trucking Association (CTA). VTC has been honored by the CTA more than 10 times for their outstanding safety record.

“We are so honored to have won this prestigious award again this year,” said Brian Oken, CEO, Ventura Transfer Company. “Safety is our top priority and being recognized by the CTA validates the hard work of every member of our team.”

Judging is done by an independent panel that looks at how the company organizes its safety programs, conducts training, driver supervision, preventive maintenance, and their record of accident reduction. A field audit is then performed by CTA safety staff to insure the accuracy of all winning entries.

Most recently, VTC won first place for Safest Carrier in 2006 Fleet Safety Award competition in the specialized ativan online under 2 million miles category.
