Safety / Safest Drivers / DOT Compliance

At JL Shandy, on-time deliveries are our focus, but, to our team, nothing is more important than safety.   Safety is our absolute top priority.  However, we know from experience that safety does not need to be compromised for efficiency.

We are proud of our DOT compliance, safety statistics and the MVRs of our drivers, which are higher than the industry standard. These accolades are a direct result of our dedicated, in-house safety department that provides continuous, extensive safety training seminars covering local and national safety practices and procedures.

Our safety team conducts load securement training for our drivers, delivered by Indiana State Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officers.
