Published by:

JOHNS CREEK, GA – December 20, 2013 – Saia Inc. (NASDAQ: SAIA) is pleased to announce that Saia LTL Freight is distributing a 2014 calendar to customers that features the artwork of children, grandchildren, and extended family members of company employees. The calendar is a culmination of the First Annual Saia LTL Freight “That’s Why I Work Safe” Poster Contest, which was held earlier this year, where children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews of all company employees were invited to submit a poster illustrating what safety means to them.

“Saia LTL Freight is committed to promoting the safety of everyone that works for the company, such as our drivers and dockworkers, to all the passengers of every car, truck and motorcycle we share the road with each day,” said Saia LTL Freight Director of Safety and Claims Prevention Karla Staver. “We thought the contest and the calendar would be a great way to see and share what perception of safety our employees’ families have – the response was impressive.”

Each month of the calendar includes entries from children showing how much it means to them that their parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles are safe at work. Their pictures depict everything from the “rainbow” of happiness they feel when their dad comes home from work to an intricately plotted map showing actual safety procedures at Saia.

“What is clear is that when you see the calendar, you know that our employees have communicated the importance they place on safety to their families,” said Staver. “We think our customers will agree that when it comes to safety, our children have the right idea!”

From the submissions received, a first, second and third place winner was selected and awarded a check for $200, $100, and $50, respectively. Jasmine Armenta, the daughter of El Paso, Texas Line Driver Joaquin Armenta, was named the first place winner. Not only was her submission featured on the front of the 2014 calendar but it was turned into a poster that was distributed to each of Saia LTL Freight’s 147 terminals for display.
