Ryan’s Express Premium Transportation has received the prestigious TSX Approved rating for its California, Nevada, and Arizona operations as of June 2014.
The combined credentials of the three locations, with more than 150 motor coaches, make the company entirely TSX Approved. The company’s is one of only a handful of motor carrier companies operating with this status in the region, establishing it as an industry leader in safety for the West Coast.
After an extensive evaluation process, the locations based in Los Angeles (CA), Las Vegas (NV) and Phoenix (AZ) achieved a nearly perfect rating on the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review (TSX-CR), the most complete safety review in the industry. The ratings range from 1.00 to 5.00, with 1.00 established as the highest rating (i.e., closer to 1.00 the better). The Ryan’s Express locations received a rare, nearly perfect average rating of 1.15.
“Being one of a few companies with the TSX Approved status is an important competitive edge, but more so, a responsibility of an industry leading company dedicated to safety,” said John Busskohl, Chief Executive Officer of Ryan’s Express Transportation. “It is important for customers to have a way to identify the carriers making safety their top priority. Achieving higher safety standards, like the TSX Program, demonstrates our commitment to ‘leading by example.’ I am proud of our team and their achievement. We will continue to strive to be one of the safest transportation companies in the country.”
The Transportation Safety Exchange (TSX) is the ground transportation industry’s only independent rating organization that inspects, monitors and reports the safety performance of motor carriers. During the TSX-CR evaluation process, hundreds of specific checkpoints that are most critical to safe motor carrier operation are evaluated. The checkpoint results are combined with on-road performance information received from FMCSA to calculate overall ratings.
