HOBOKEN, N.J., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Academy Express, LLC is proud to announce that it has become TSX Approved as a safer motor carrier, having successfully completed the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review (TSX-CR). 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.
"Our TSX Approved status underscores our commitment to safety as our corporate priority. Each member of our team contributes to our overall performance and this distinction is a testament to their dedication to our passengers," said Michael Horak, Director of Operational Risk Management.
"Being TSX Approved demonstrates a motor carrier's dedication to better safety standards," said TSX President Patrick Labriola. "In today's crowded marketplace, it is important for customers to have a way to identify the safer carriers on the road. With TSX Approval, carriers demonstrate that they are making safety a top priority."
Passenger trip organizers and sponsors all bear responsibility and potential risk for operator performance and safety. They must demonstrate that they have used the highest standard of care possible in selecting a motor carrier. As passenger trip organizers and sponsors perform their due diligence, TSX Approval will help them identify their safest options.
"Given the complexity of evaluating all the safety data on the web today, we are confident that TSX can help simplify the decision making process when it comes to choosing safe operators with proven track records," says Mr. Horak.
