Interstate Van Lines Named AMSA’S Fleet Safety Award Winner For Eighth Consecutive Year



SPRINGFIELD, VA, March 23, 2017– Interstate Van Lines, Inc. [], one of the largest independent moving companies in the United States, announced today that it has been honored with The American Moving & Storage Association’s (AMSA) annual Fleet Safety Award. This marks the eighth consecutive year that Interstate has received this prestigious award.  

“Safety on our roads is a top priority at Interstate,” says John D. (J.D.) Morrissette, President of Interstate Van Lines. “Our commitment to maintaining stringent safety standards companywide has resulted in Interstate having some of the best drivers in the industry,” adds Morrissette.  As an industry leader, Interstate equipped its entire fleet with Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), well in advance of the December, 2017 federal requirement, and has implemented a four-tier system Driver Improvement Plan.   

For the past twenty years, Interstate has either received first place or runner up for AMSA’s annual Fleet Safety Award. AMSA evaluates moving companies based upon annual miles traveled and the best weighted combination of the lowest U.S. Department of Transportation recordable accident rate per million miles of vehicle operation, and the lowest vehicle and driver out-of-service rate.  Interstate ranks among the overall best in each AMSA category, and has the best safety record among all categories. 

Interstate enters its 74th year in business this year, continuing its dedication to the safety of our drivers and those with whom we share the road.

Interstate accepted its award at AMSA’s 97th Annual Education & Expo in Palm Springs, CA.
