"We think of safety as a critical part of our culture that we live every day. It requires discipline, effort and the desire to keep our customer's freight safe, as well as each other."

Bill Durstock
Director of Risk Management

Dayton Freight is proud of its phenomenal safety record – one of the finest in the transportation industry. Our Drivers are dedicated to transporting your shipments on time, intact and in the safest manner possible. They recognize that attention to speed limits, road conditions and other drivers are critical components of quality freight management. Whether operating forklifts or loading freight, our Dockworkers adhere to strict Company guidelines regarding job procedures. We believe our great safety record is due to the quality of the employees we hire, along with on-going training and fleet maintenance.

  • Continuous Improvement of all Dock and Vehicle Operations

  • Annual Employee Safety Awards Program
  • Million Mile Club
  • Ongoing Company-Wide Safety Communications
