SAFETY & SUSTAINABILITY
The Yellow Team | Feb. 21, 2023
We are proud to recognize our professional drivers who reached the notable honor of driving a million miles or more without a single preventable accident. Our drivers receiving this award are exemplary in their professionalism, dedication and their commitment to safety.
By the numbers for 2022, 298 Yellow drivers achieved the Million Mile status:
To put into perspective the dedication and distance each one of these drivers has achieved to reach this milestone — it takes almost a decade for a professional truck driver to travel one million miles. And just one million miles is equivalent to traveling 40 trips around the Earth or two trips to the Moon and back.
City Combination driver Pedro Fuentes (Terminal #390, Santa Clara, Calif.), who recently achieved the remarkable status of three million miles, shared thoughts on his 31-year career of accident- and injury-free driving: “I have a process, I am always aware of my surroundings, where I step, where I walk, where I work, where I drive, space for my vehicle and I always perform good equipment pre-trip and post-trip checks.”
Our professional drivers embody Yellow’s safety mission every day as they pick up and deliver customer freight.
Congratulations to all our professional drivers who reached the Million Mile status in 2022. We wish you many more safe miles.
Whether it’s rescuing a fellow motorist or helping others in need, these are just a few examples of how Yellow drivers perform heroically on the road.
It’s a good question and one we get asked all the time. The answer goes back to Yellow’s origins and commitment to safety.
Yellow’s growing network of CDL Driving Academies is graduating hundreds of new professional drivers and addressing an industry need.
