XPO Logistics has announced that its 12,575 less-than-truckload drivers have surpassed one billion miles with no preventable accidents since the company began tracking the statistic.
XPO started tracking consecutive accident-free miles by drivers in April 2012 and by May of 2017, 890 XPO drivers had reached one to three million accident-free miles for a total that exceeded one billion miles.
“The billion-mile mark is a huge achievement for our company and a point of pride for our drivers,” said Tony Brooks, president of the LTL business for XPO Logistics. “It speaks to their impressive commitment to both safety and customer service, because an accident on the road is also a delay in delivery.”
XPO held a two-day celebration for the 19 exemplary drivers who have exceeded three million miles accident-free. The event was held at XPO’s LTL headquarters in Ann Arbor, Mich. The drivers were recognized in a special ceremony and attended a roundtable hosted by CEO Bradley Jacobs.
“I want to particularly commend the 890 XPO drivers who have achieved personal milestones of one to three million accident-free miles in the past five years,” said Brooks. “These drivers alone have contributed 1,102,000,000 miles to our tally.”
