OmniTRAX recognizes safety practices at three Nebraska shippers


OmniTRAX Inc. affiliate Nebraska, Kansas & Colorado Railway (NKCR) recently presented three community donations to local Nebraska fire departments at individual ceremonies to honor the recipients of the annual OmniTRAX Safe Shipper Award.

The award recognizes companies that model exemplary shipping safety by shipping or receiving loaded cars with no accidental releases during the previous year.

The 2021 OmniTRAX Safe Shipper Award recipients for the NKCR are Mid America Agri Products/Wheatland, Hi-Line Co-op and Frenchman Valley Coop. In their honor, NKCR made $1,000 donations to the volunteer fire departments in Madrid, Grant and Imperial, Nebraska.

"Safety is a shared priority in the communities we serve, and this year’s three NKCR Safe Shipper award winners have each demonstrated their tireless commitment to community safety," said OmniTRAX CEO Dean Piacente in a press release.
