— XPO Logistics (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transportation and logistics, today announced that professional drivers David Trotter, Bryan Broyles and Thomas Spiker have each surpassed three million accident-free miles. The drivers were honored at XPO's less-than-truckload (LTL) service centers in Mobile, Ala., Mundelein, Ill., and Joliet, Ill., respectively.
Tony Brooks, president of XPO's LTL business, said, "The accomplishments of David, Bryan and Tom exemplify our company's constant focus on safety. Three million miles equates to some 30 years of sharing the road accident-free over a distance of roughly 120 times around the Earth. That's a truly impressive safety performance. We're proud to have these three professionals on our team, serving our customers."
"If you want to achieve one million miles, you've got to love your job," said Trotter. "If you want to reach three million miles, you've got to live and breathe safe driving. I take every safety practice seriously, starting with my pre-trip inspection each day."
"The professional drivers who reach three million miles don't take unnecessary risks and are always vigilant about anticipating what may happen on the road," said Spiker. "XPO is well known for its safety culture. I'm honored to be part of a team that values this kind of accomplishment."
Trotter, Broyles and Spiker join nine other distinguished drivers who have achieved three million accident-free miles since the company's LTL operations began in 1983.
