Crowley Receives Alaska Safe Truck Fleet Award

By Mark Edward Nero

Alaska-based Crowley Fuels has been honored with the ConocoPhillips/Alaska Trucking Association “Alaska Safe Truck Fleet of the Year” award in the Line Haul Division (fleet size under 50 units) for performing at an elite safety level, the company announced May 23.

ConocoPhillips/ATA presented the award to Crowley Vice President Laura Yellig during the ATA’s annual Safety Awards Banquet last month in Anchorage.

The Safety Awards Banquet, dually hosted each year by the ATA and ConocoPhillips, is an event to recognize carriers that have the best safety performance.

In being considered for the “Alaska Safe Truck Fleet of the Year” award, the Crowley team was evaluated and ranked on several 2016 statistics, including: total number of miles driven, the company’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration CSA fleet scores, accident frequency, and overall Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rate.

Last year, drivers of Crowley’s fleet of more than 100 vehicles, which includes 27 line haul trucks, drove almost three million miles while delivering more than 150 million gallons of petroleum products to communities across Alaska, according to the company.

“Our highway staff earned the honor by doing their best every single day, often in incredibly challenging conditions,” Yellig said in a statement.
