CARLILE STEPS UP FOR SAFETY AT ANNUAL COMMUNITY EVENT
ANCHORAGE – Alaska has some of the most hazardous driving conditions in the country. In 2020, there were 53 fatal motor vehicle crashes and 64 deaths in the state, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Traffic fatalities at a national level reached a 16-year high in 2021, according to the national Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is one of many reasons Carlile Transportation, an Alaska shipping company, is active in roadway safety and prevention education.
The company kept safety awareness moving at the annual Wheel-O-Rama fair on June 15. The event, hosted by Alaska Regional Hospital, raised awareness about trauma, safety and injury prevention related to wheeled vehicles. Carlile was joined by several community partners, including police officers, firefighters, People Mover and the American Red Cross.
“Safety is at the core of our business operations. We appreciate the opportunity to spotlight safety practices in the communities that we serve,” said Jeremy Miller, who is Vice President of Operations at Carlile.
Carlile is Alaska’s leading trucking and logistics company, with terminals in Alaska, Tacoma, Houston and Alberta. The company provides trucking, ocean, air and rail solutions to connect shippers and supply chains to Alaska.
