GREEN BAY, Wis. — In recognition of those who live and embody its Safety First and Always core value, Schneider, among the nation’s largest truckload carriers, recently honored hundreds of its most accomplished drivers with awards celebrating career driving milestones.
Included in the esteemed awards were Haul of Fame inductions, Million Mile Driver Awards and Consecutive Safe Driving Year Awards.
The prestigious honor of induction into Schneider’s Haul of Fame is reserved for drivers who have accumulated at least 3 million safe driving miles and/or 20 consecutive years of safe driving without an accident. This year, 26 new inductees met these criteria, earning them membership alongside over 300 of Schneider’s elite drivers. Each inductee will have a commemorative plaque installed on the Haul of Fame wall at Schneider’s corporate headquarters in Green Bay.
“The honor and recognition these professional drivers have earned show that they truly exemplify our ‘Safety First and Always’ culture,” said Tom DiSalvi, vice president of safety, driver training and compliance at Schneider. “These outstanding drivers are the latest to contribute to a long history of safe driving, and we’re proud of the tradition they carry on through their achievements.”
The Million Mile Award is an honor earned by Schneider drivers who have transported freight over 1 million miles while remaining accident-free. This year, the number of drivers reaching million-mile safety marks is as follows:
- 67 new 1-Million Mile Award winners
- 42 new 2-Million Mile Award winners
- 13 new 3-Million Mile Award winners
- Three new 4-Million Mile Award winners
These new honorees have driven accident-free for the equivalent of 8,112 trips around the Earth’s equator. Through sleet and snow, across icy bridges and up winding mountain roads, Schneider drivers champion safety as their primary objective.
Additionally, Schneider recognized 113 drivers who have remained accident-free for 10 years and each five-year increment thereafter. This year’s Consecutive Safe Years Driving Award winners include:
- 63 new 10-year Consecutive Safe Years Driving honorees
- 25 new 15-year Consecutive Safe Years Driving honorees
- 16 new 20-year Consecutive Safe Years Driving honorees
- Six new 25-year Consecutive Safe Years Driving honorees
- Two new 30-year Consecutive Safe Years Driving honorees
- One new 45-year Consecutive Safe Years Driving honoree
Throughout the year, Schneider hosted 14 award banquets to recognize the Haul of Fame inductees as well as drivers receiving the Million Mile Awards and Consecutive Safe Years Driving Awards.
