Southern California Based Total Transportation Solutions & Vision Motors Named Top Winners at Annual Edison Awards

LOS ANGELES, May 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Total Transportation Services, Inc. ("TTSI") and Vision Motors ("Vision"), both of Southern California, have been named top award winners in their respective categories at the annual "Edison Awards" – one of the most prestigious recognitions for energy solutions and innovation in the world. The announcement came last Friday, April 27 at the prestigious Academy of Sciences in New York City before a sold-out crowd. 

TTSI won the Gold Medal in the category of "Energy and Sustainability, Automotive/Transportation" for its Class 8 Hybrid Truck fleet. Vision received the Bronze Medal in the Transportation Category behind only the Ford Motor Company for its 2012 Ford Focus Electric and Fisker Automotive for their innovative Fisker Karma.

The "Edison Awards", celebrating 25 years of honoring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, saw hundreds of senior executives from some of the world's most recognized companies gathered to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all the winners.

"We are extremely honored to have been awarded this recognition," said Vic LaRosa, President and CEO of TTSI. "Our business has made an unparalleled commitment to innovation in greening the supply chain. Our use of the hydrogen fuel-cell platform, among our other clean trucks, is proof of that commitment and we are pleased to have been recognized for those efforts."

"Vision has always been on the cutting edge of innovative transportation technologies," said Martin Scheurmann, CEO of Vision Motors. "This Edison Award is a testament to our efforts in supplying true zero emission technologies to the transportation and goods-movement industries."

The Class 8 "Tyrano" truck, for which both companies were honored, is a joint effort between TTSI and Vision and is designed for drayage in the maritime and construction environments. More information can be found at www.tts-i.com and www.visionindustriescorp.com.
