Safety the bulk of the work for fuel haulers

CALGARY, Alta. — A handful of western carriers got a bit of recognition recently from the people who produce the products they haul.

The Canadian Petroleum Products Institute (CPPI) recognized five transportation companies who completed the delivery of petroleum products in a safe manner during 2007. The awards were presented during a luncheon in Calgary on April 17.

Collectively, these five carriers made more than 82,000 deliveries in 2007 on behalf of CPPI member companies in western Canada.

The carrier safety awards recognize western division contracted carriers for: reduction in incident frequencies versus the pervious calendar year, overall safety performance in performance of their responsibilities, and promotion of driver and fleet safety within the transportation industry.
