A national trade association recently gave its top honors to Gemini Motor Transport, the primary fuel-hauling fleet for Love’s Travel Stops.
The National Tank Truck Carriers, Inc., a trade association that specializes in bulk transportation services, recognized Gemini for its safe driving record at the organization’s annual conference safety award luncheon this week. Representatives from Gemini accepted the Harvison Division North American Safety Champion Award at the event.
The NTTC’s North American Safety Awards recognizes the best tank truck industry safety programs in two different mileage divisions. Gemini Motor Transport won the over 40-million miles category with an accident frequency of 0.291 accidents per million miles.
“Delivering fuel is our primary job, but safety is our top priority,” said Brent Bergevin, vice president of transportation for Gemini. “Hundreds of Gemini’s professional drivers log millions of miles per year, and maintaining safety on the roadways is crucial to the integrity of our company.”
Every year, Gemini rewards drivers for maintaining a high level of safety. Earlier this year, the company distributed more than $1.12 million in bonuses to drivers who remained accident-free and met Gemini’s strict safety policies and procedures for five years. Gemini has awarded more than $6.3 million in Safe Driver Credits to drivers since 2016.
Based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Gemini Motor Transport is a nationwide for-hire fuel, crude and specialty products motor carrier. It has more than 750 trucks and employs about 1,100 drivers in the U.S. and Canada.
