Land-Air back on the road

Jan. 7, 2016
Carrier had been shut down after "unsatisfactory" safety rating.

Regional LTL carrier Land-Air Express of New England is back in business after being placed out-of-service by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) earlier this year.

FMCSA said in a statement that “based on a negotiated safety management plan, and evidence of actions taken by the company to correct deficiencies in its safety management system, Land-Air’s rating has been upgraded to ‘conditional,’ and the out-of-service order lifted.”

As part of what the agency called a “negotiated agreement,” FMCSA will closely monitor the carrier’s safety performance for the next two years.
