APP Achieves Top Honors for 2015 Washington Trucker Association Awards
Associated Petroleum Products (APP) headquartered in Tacoma, Washington has achieved once again 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 140 drivers employed at APP that in 2014 hauled 495,000,000 million gallons of fuel over 4,212,004 million miles. They accomplished this with having only three DOT and/or non-DOT accidents or incidents. 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 2015 WTA Fleet Safety Award was based on the Category of 5 Million Miles or less for the private fleet division. The Washington State Patrol reviews the safety record for the fleet including safe miles, roadside inspections, overall compliance and providing a positive influence to the industry.
“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 are a top priority for our drivers,” Luke commented further.
APP’s growth into the Coastal Communities of Western Washington and Northwestern Oregon in the last two years hasn’t deterred from their ability to focus on what is most important for a fleet company of any size, which is safety. Hauling a variety of petroleum products, over the road and in hundreds of communities requires the highest of standards to ensure the safety of the neighborhoods they do business in.
“APP is proud of our continual motivation to achieve the highest performance in our industry and this award amongst others proves that we are a great partner to do business with,” commented Carol Harris Operations Manager of APP. “2016 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.
Associated Petroleum Products (APP), is a family-owned, second generation business that has been voted into the Top 150 Privately-Owned Companies in Washington State, one of the Ten Fastest Growing Companies in the State of Washington, One of the Top Places to Work, One of the Top 50-Propane Retail Marketers in the United States, and voted Best in The Northwest Washington Family Business of the Year.
APP operates multiple locations in Western Washington and Portland, Oregon featuring large quantities of fuels, lubricants, and propane, plus a chain of CFN® and Pacific Pride cardlock and retail station services.
