Marzolf Trucking receives safety award

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. – Marzolf Trucking, Inc. of Glen Elder was recently presented a platinum award by Great West Casualty Company as part of our 2015 National Safety Awards Program.

Mark Marzolf started Marzolf Trucking in 1985 with a single truck, hauling only grain. Through 31 years, the company has grown to include more services, such as liquid fertilizer and feed, with a fleet of eight trucks. Marzolf Trucking purchased the Hubbard Feed Mill truck line in 2007 and became the exclusive deliverer of Hubbard Feeds from the Beloit location. In addition to owner Mark Marzolf, the company employs six drivers: Dale Weston (15 years), Greg Drum (8 years), Mark Dahlman (8 years), David Peters (5 years), Troy Kerschner (3 years) and Johnnie Reed (1 year). This is the ninth consecutive year Marzolf Trucking has received the award.

“I am proud that Marzolf Trucking continues to lead the way in safety for our industry,” said Marzolf. “We have a great group of drivers who deserve so much credit for maintaining our excellent reputation of safe driving.”

The National Safety Awards program recognizes motor carriers in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year- end preventable crash results. Carriers are eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver or Participatory award. This past year, the National Safety Awards program drew over 675 participants from across the country.
