Landstar celebrated its newest class of million mile drivers and Roadsters at its fifth annual Landstar BCO All-Star celebration July 1-3. Landstar honored 122 Business Capacity Owners (BCOs), the company’s term for its owner-operators, as new Million Mile Safe Drivers.
Those drivers have gone one million miles without a preventable accident. Eight additional BCOs were recognized as Two Million Mile Safe Drivers, and one BCO was honored as a Three Million Mile Safe Driver. All of the honorees together have driven more than 122 million miles.
“Landstar is proud to showcase the class of Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers as the industry’s best,” said Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni. “Their talent, hard work and dedication is truly worthy of a celebration. These men and women make the roads safer for us all; we are proud to honor them.”
Landstar honored 10 new Roadsters, a title given to the company’s safest drivers who also provide excellence in customer service, at the event.
Fred Durbin was awarded the company’s BCO Lifetime Achievement Award. He’s driven over three million safe miles for Landstar since signing on with the company in 1978. During his time as a BCO, he’s won 37 annual safe driving awards.
