Chicago Rail Link honors shipper safety with police, fire department donations


Chicago Rail Link LLC (CRL), a managed affiliate of OmniTRAX Inc., presented contributions to the Chicago 004 District Police Department and Chicago Fire Department Engine 81 at a ceremony honoring local recipients of the inaugural OmniTRAX Safe Shipper Award.

The OmniTRAX Safe Shipper Award is presented to companies that modeled exemplary shipping safety by shipping or receiving loaded cars with no accidental releases during the previous year, according to an OmniTRAX news release.

The 2020 OmniTRAX Safe Shipper Award recipients on the CRL are American Zinc Recycling and BP Products North America. A $1,000 contribution was made in the name of each award winner.

"Community safety is a shared goal, and this generous donation will help us continue to serve the people and partners here in South Chicago," said 004 District Chicago Police Department Sgt. Steve Haltek. "We are thankful for Chicago Rail Link's commitment to community safety."
