GREENWICH, Conn. – XPO, a leading provider of less-than-truckload freight transportation in North America, has announced that 254 of its professional truck drivers reached new safety milestones in 2022: achieving one million, two million or three million miles of accident-free driving.
Collectively, these drivers have covered more than 318 million accident-free miles over their careers.
Mario Harik, XPO’s chief executive officer, said, “I want to congratulate the 254 drivers who reached this impressive milestone in 2022.
“They join more than 2,000 other distinguished million-mile drivers at XPO and are an inspiration to our entire organization.
“I’m grateful for their achievements and proud of each of our 22,000 drivers, mechanics, dockworkers and other North American employees for their shared commitment to safety.”
It typically takes about nine years and nearly 20,000 hours of service for LTL drivers to reach one million miles – the equivalent of 40 trips around the Earth.
In 2022, David Frazier became the first XPO driver to surpass a landmark four million accident-free miles – the best driver safety record in the company’s history.
Additionally, truck driver, Kelly Shaffer based in Clearfield, reached three million miles accident-free, marking an incredible milestone in his career.
With the highest milage under Shaffer‘s belt in Pennsylvania, he is part of a total of 14 Pennsylvania based truck drivers that are being recognized for reaching million-mile milestones in 2022.
To put Shaffer’s achievement into perspective, it would take 30 years and 60,000 hours of driving to drive 3M miles.
