Modern Transportation devotes extensive amounts of time & resource to ensuring that our operations – and the services they produce – are innovative & reliable, flexible & affordable. We take great pains to operate in an environmentally sustainable fashion, and we strive to be an active and positive force in our communities.
The fruits of all of these efforts, however, are meaningless unless Modern’s central focus is first, and foremost, fixed upon SAFE OPERATIONS. Transporting bulk materials across this nation’s public roadways carries with it a degree of risk. We understand that securing such risk cannot occur unless a comprehensive culture of safety is fostered. And for that culture to exist all of Modern’s personnel understand that safety is neither a status nor an event, but a state of being.
Modern believes we have an unending obligation to the motoring public with whom we share the road and to our customers who entrust their valuable materials to our system. To instill continuous safety improvements across Modern’s national infrastructure we empower a Director of Safety to drive our comprehensive safety focus.
The result of this singular focus and our efforts therein is a transportation system that is among the safest in the United States. Each of our driver, tractor and trailer scores in Safety Evaluation Areas (SEA) are under 20%, which gives Modern a Department of Transportation grade of "Extensive" in their review of safety measures taken.
Achieving this noteworthy DOT evaluation is also the result of numerous on-going safety system enhancements. Chief among them are Modern’s investment in:
Tractor-trailer Systems: Collision avoidance, cab integrated video monitoring, lane departure warning,
Driver Systems: Speed alarm, driver training, e-logs, driver performance metrics, accident reconstruction, driver pre-hire assessment
Modern is extremely proud of its innovative approach to logistics and our intense focus on customer satisfaction. But nothing is as important to us as operating safely – and the results confirm our success.
