Landstar System, Inc., a non-asset based provider of integrated supply chain solutions delivering safe, specialized transportation, warehousing and logistics services, has recognized 93 men and women for their outstanding safety records and professionalism behind the wheel.

The business capacity owners (BCOs) were honored as Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers at a recent awards banquet in Jacksonville, Florida. BCO is Landstar’s term for the independent contractors who provide the company with transportation capacity under exclusive lease arrangements.

Collectively, these 93 BCOs have safely driven a total of 106 million miles – a distance that would cover the 4 million miles of public roads in the United States 27 times. On average, it takes a truck operator 10 years to travel a million miles. This distance would take the typical driver of a passenger vehicle 67 years – around the time of their 83rd birthday – to complete.

Leading the 2010 class is 3 Million Mile Safe Driver Mark Webb of Christiansburg, Virginia.

In addition, 11 BCOs reached the 2 million mile mark: Kenneth Bramm, Covington, Pennsylvania; Robert DeRuiter, Freeport, Illinois; David Edinger, Tully, New York; Kenneth Johnston, Urbana, Missouri; Ralph Jones, Blountville, Tennessee; Loyal Dean Koehl, Tunnel Hill, Georgia; Charles Millar, Radford, Virginia; Jeffery Oerman, Jonesboro, Arkansas; Ronald Reinhardt, Lena, Wisconsin; John Ross, Greenville, Virginia; Gary Siefken, Fulton, Illinois.

Eighty one BCOs were honored for the first time for driving 1 million consecutive miles without a preventable accident.

“Each year it gives me great pride to announce our new class of Million Mile Safe Drivers. These men and women represent the talent, hard work and dedication to safety that make up the core values of Landstar,” said Landstar Chairman, President and CEO Henry Gerkens. “Their safety and professionalism behind the wheel is to be commended.”

This class of 93 brings the total number of active BCOs who have earned the Million Mile title to 660. The complete list of 2009 Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers is also available on www.landstar.com.
