Billerica, MA -- Boyle Transportation has achieved ISO 14001:2015 certification for its Environmental Management System (EMS). According to the registrar, we are the first motor carrier in North America to be ISO 14001 certified.
We're excited to announce that Boyle Transportation has become part of Andlauer Healthcare Group Inc. ("AHG"). "We are thrilled to be welcoming the Boyle Transportation team to Andlauer Healthcare Group", stated Michael Andlauer, Chief Executive Officer of AHG.
Earlier this year Boyle Transportation was named one of the 20 “Best Fleets to Drive For” in the US and Canada for the 7th year in a row. Today we learned that we were named The Overall Best Fleet in the smaller fleet category! This is the second year in a row that we received this prestigious award. We are very fortunate to have not only great professional drivers in our fleet, but also dedicated technicians and staff members who put those drivers in position to be safe and successful every day. It’s an honor for us to work alongside you. We want to recognize and thank our Recruiting, Safety, Maintenance and Operations teams along with our rotating members of the Professional Driver Advisory Committee - put in significant efforts to keep us on top of the Best Fleets program.
Boyle Transportation is not just hauling freight, but delivering hope to millions. The company was one of the first to transport the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizers Global Supply manufacturing plant to distribution points across the country.
Boyle Transportation on the Frontline of the COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Effort
Boyle Transportation is on the front line of the COVID-19 vaccination effort, as the first shipment from a Pfizer manufacturing plant near Kalamazoo, Michigan was transported to an airport about 90 miles away. Boyle is partnering with UPS for some of the first-leg shipments of the vaccine to different locations across the country.
Boyle Transportation was once again honored with the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) Distinguished Service Award. We're happy to support NDTA in its educational mission to foster a strong and efficient transportation system for national security and we're grateful for this acknowledgement.
Anticipating the Logistics of a COVID-19 Vaccination Effort
Over 24 million cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed worldwide, including more than 800,000 deaths. There is a dire need for therapeutics and vaccines to fight the pandemic, and the biopharmaceutical industry has been working at a furious pace to develop effective products. While the accelerated development and manufacture of COVID-19 vaccines is a daunting task, the greatest challenge may lie in getting those vaccines to billions of people around the world.
The Essentiality of Transportation to the Pharma Industry
Boyle Transportation, through its strategic, collaborative logistics and transportation services, is helping pharmaceutical companies get life-saving medicines to people in need despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis.
