Associated Petroleum Products (APP) headquartered in Tacoma, Washington has achieved two top honors through the Washington Trucker Association (WTA) and Washington State Patrol.

· The Common Carrier of the Year Grand Champion award was achieved with the 95 drivers employed at APP that in 2012 hauled 340,064,244 million gallons of fuel over 2,950,444 million miles. They accomplished this with having only one DOT and/or non-DOT accident or incident. This record sets the standards for which the trucking industry should drive for. This award is compared to all other trucking companies and fleets in the State of Washington regardless of size and based on safety performance.
· The 2013 WTA Fleet Safety Award was based on the Category of 5 Million Miles or less. This award is determined on factors such as overall safety record from the Washington State Patrol.
“Since both of these awards are decided by the Washington State Patrol and the Washington Trucking Association, it is truly an achievement our driving staff is proud about”, stated Luke Xitco, President CEO of APP. “Hauling petroleum over the road 24 hours per day, seven days per week, we are at risk every single day with a catastrophic event and safety practices is a top priority for our drivers”, Luke commented further.

In April, APP achieved the top honor of Top Places to Work in the South Sound by the Business Examiner and was honored by Chevron in May as one of the top grand prize winners in a nationwide sales contest based on strong sales of select Chevron Delo products.
“APP is proud of our achievements this year and will continue to strive to be at the top in a great place to work and a great partner to do business with”, commented Carol Harris Operations Manager of APP. “2014 will be another year of strong growth and we are actively seeking quality candidates to add to our driving staff to make it happen”, Carol commented further.
