Safety and Security
The Importance of Safety Should Never be Underestimated
At Galaxy Transport, safety is a core value. We recognize the importance of endorsing and embracing a safe work environment from a number of different perspectives:
- for clients – the consummate care and protection of their goods
- for drivers – update-to-date certifications; knowledge of equipment and regulations
- for trailers – regular inspection and maintenance schedules
- for those who share the road – responsible and attentive driving above all else
Personal safety as well as the safety of others should neither be compromised nor taken for granted in any way or at any time. There is simply too much at risk to become complacent and self-satisfied in the transportation industry, especially when one considers the size and weight of the trailers, the distances travelled, and the value of the goods being transported.
Galaxy Transport is aware of the dangers of complacency and as a result, we treat each and every step of the transportation process with the utmost care and attention, and with the assurance that the safety of your goods as well as the safety of our drivers will never be compromised in the interests of time or money.
Galaxy Transport: Your freight. Our trucks. One common goal.
Security Measures are Critically Important in the Transportation Industry
The transportation industry in North America includes cross-border as well as interstate and interprovincial shipments, in turn requiring strict adherence to specific security measures and/or programs based on destination and type of cargo.
For our Galaxy team, security is a vital and non-negotiable aspect of our business.
We are certified and active participants in security efforts aligned with U.S. Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Canada Border Services Agency (CSBA), including:
- Partners in Protection (PIP) – customs regulations
- Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT)
- Free and Secure Trade (FAST) Program – expediting cross-border shipments
- Customs Self Assessment (CSA) Program – pre-approvals for low-risk goods
- Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) – import and export processing
As an added security measure, all of our trailers are equipped with GPS Tracking Devices so that we can confirm that your goods are where they are supposed to be in correlation with when they are supposed to be there.
