XPO Logistics has honoured 115 of the company’s truck drivers for reaching ‘million-miler’ status in the first six months of 2022. Their achievements add a collective 142 million accident-free miles to the strong safety record of XPO’s North American less-than-truckload (LTL) business.
Two of the drivers surpassed three million accident-free miles: Johnny Bass of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Paul Hartman of Blythe, California. In addition, 23 drivers exceeded two million accident-free miles, and 90 drivers became first-time million milers at one million miles. XPO tracks accident-free miles in its LTL network as part of Road to Zero, the company’s comprehensive safety program.

Our 115 honorees come from 34 states and set an outstanding example across our network. We thank them and all our drivers for building a world-class safety culture at XPO.”
