Landstar announced MAXIM Crane Works, L.P. of Wilder, Kentucky, as its 2022 Overall Landstar M.U.S.T. Customer of the Year.

A collaboration between Landstar and its customers, Landstar’s Mutual Understanding of Safety Together, or M.U.S.T., program involves an extensive on-site review of a customer’s facility, followed by discussion and analysis of loading, unloading and securement, in addition to other safety practices.

Landstar Vice President of Safety and Compliance Shelly Seaton announced MAXIM Crane Works, L.P. as the overall winner during a ceremony held April 14, 2023. Independent Landstar Agent Tony Lay and Triple C Logistics, Inc., the Landstar agency that worked with MAXIM Crane Works, also were recognized.

In 2022, the company collaborated with Lay on ways to improve safety at its Wilder facility. This included a M.U.S.T. customer visit, participating in Landstar’s safety calls, and working together on yard-operation safety and job-site safety requirements.

In response to the program’s success at its Wilder, Kentucky facility, MAXIM Crane Works is making plans to share the M.U.S.T. program and Landstar Safety Thursday Conference Call with its 60 facilities nationwide and continues to prove its continuing dedication to a safe workplace.

“MAXIM Crane Works shares Landstar’s safety-first approach and it was even more apparent the company is serious about safety when, along with Tony, they were eager to share the information from the site visit with additional locations, and participate in future Safety Thursday Conference Calls,” said Seaton.
