PETROLEUM DIRECTORY: Carlile recognizes performance in safety

Carlile Transportation recognized individual drivers for outstanding safety performance at its first annual driver safety awards banquet September 22 in Anchorage.

“Our goal is to be the best, safest transportation company in Alaska and throughout North America,” said Harry McDonald, Carlile’s president. “Safe highways start with safe drivers and we need to communicate our support for their performance and make sure the driving public knows that we have a team of safe drivers on the roads.”

In attendance at the banquet were Tracy Luellen with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration; John Sallak from Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and strategic risk advisor; officials from the Alaska Trucking Association and representatives from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

Banquets were scheduled for September 22 at the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage; September 23 at the Princess Riverside Lodge in Fairbanks; September 29 at the Oakbrook Golf and Country Club in Tacoma, WA; and October 6 in Houston, TX.

Carlile was also named to the top 100 carriers by national trade publication Inbound Logistics and Transportation Company of the Year for the Pacific Northwest by the Tacoma Transportation Club.

Founded in 1980 by brothers John and Harry McDonald, Carlile has grown from two tractors to one of Alaska’s largest trucking companies. Carlile Transportation Systems is based in Anchorage and employs more than 550 people, including 110 in Tacoma. Carlile terminals serve Alaska from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Prudhoe Bay/Deadhorse, Seward, Forest Lake, MN, Tacoma and Fife, WA, Houston, TX and Edmonton, Alberta.
