A perfect blitz score by Utah's A-1 Freight Systems underscores the freight broker company's dedication and future direction in their industry.

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRUnderground) June 17th, 2015

A-1 Freight Systems is a full-service freight brokerage company based in Utah. With daily shipments in and out of the continental US, A-1 Freight Systems brings over 13 years of success to the freight brokerage industry. With such a prestigious background, it is no surprise that during this year’s Annual Inspection Blitz all A-1 Freight Systems’ trucks passed with successful results.

A-1 Freight Systems encompasses over 70 dedicated trucks across the country to move freight with multiple shipments, single shipments, or partial loads. They are well known to handle time sensitive, crucial shipments, as well as slow moving shipments and specializes in offering Power Only, Flatbed, Stepdeck, and Specialized Heavy Hauling.

The blitz took place during the first week of June 2015. The annual inspection blitz is done by a joint effort of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and others. Roughly 10,000 inspectors from state, local and federal enforcement agencies performed nearly 70,000 inspections on trucks and buses over the 72-hour period. They were stationed at 1,500 inspection points around North America. This year’s special emphasis was for cargo securement, and the full 37 step level I inspections. According to CVSA, routine checks for drivers included licenses, endorsements, medical card, and hours of service documentation. Focusing on safety, drivers were also checked for seat belt, alcohol, and controlled substances usage.

A-1 Freight Systems President, Kara Harris is proud to announce that none of their team’s drivers received any violations. The ones who were pulled into port all had clean inspection reports. After passing the inspection at a 100% rate, Harris gave them a bonus for keeping their maintenance up to date and clean. “I’m very proud of my team. It’s a sign that we have successfully inculcated our company’s best practices of quality and safety.”

A-1 Freight Systems consists of 15 trucks and a dozen independent agent offices. Three of the twelve agent offices focus on dispatching. Ms. Harris remarks. ” We are growing, and we are proud to stand by our promise of delivering excellent service by keeping dedicated employees and watching out for their welfare and keeping them happy.” She continues. “The latest blitz results emphasizes that growing as a team leads to a successful corporate structure that allows for consistent growth, competitive pricing, and satisfied customers.”
