Canby man reaches million-mile milestone
Landstar System Inc., a worldwide asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions, recently recognized Canby's Tim Andrews as a One Million Mile Safe Driver earlier this month during an awards ceremony at the 2022 Landstar BCO All-Star Celebration.
The annual Million Mile Safe Driver awards honor Landstar business capacity owners, Landstar's term for independent truck owner-operators leased to a Landstar motor carrier, for their outstanding safety records and professionalism behind the wheel.
Andrews is one of 112 owner-operators who make up the 2021 Class of Landstar One Million Mile Safe Drivers, meaning he has driven more than 1 million consecutive miles with Landstar without a preventable accident.
On average, it takes a Landstar BCO 10 years to travel 1 million miles, a distance that would take a typical noncommercial driver roughly 67 years to complete.
"Tim Andrews is among the safest and skilled owner-operators in the industry. Canby should be proud of him and this outstanding accomplishment," said Landstar President and CEO Jim Gattoni.
Landstar's Class of 2021 honorees also includes nine new Two Million Mile Safe Drivers and five new Three Million Mile Safe Drivers.
