“Load Team members help to personify ABF's commitment to meeting our customers’ needs through safe and efficient freight handling,” says ABF President and Chief Executive Officer Wes Kemp. “Due to the talents of dedicated employees like these, shipping customers can trust ABF — knowing that more than 99 percent of all shipments are moved claim free.”
Load Team members are selected on the basis of their safety records, involvement in ABF’s Quality Process, integrity and their ability to load trailers in an optimal fashion – a skill that facilitates the safe, timely and efficient movement of shipments. The Load Team program was established not only to honor outstanding performance but also to draw upon dock employees’ insights regarding dock procedures and equipment.
