Silver Level Safety

While on the road, my 9 Year Silver Level Safety Award came in the mail.  Every year, as long as I don't hit anything, I get little treats to commemorate my safe driving. I always get the standard pair of gloves, safety patch, number sticker, wallet card, and hat pin. This package included a small Victorinox Swiss Army knife and what looks like a charm for a necklace, which I would never wear as a necklace but which I will add to my key ring.

Along with the trinkets, there was a letter from the President and CEO.  The letter said,

Dear Landstar BCO:

Congratulations on the achievement of your 9th anniversary of safe driving with Landstar.  I would like to thank you for your dedication to providing safe, professional services day-in and day-out.  On behalf of our customers, agents, fellow BCOs and employees, we thank you for your commitment and recognize your efforts in reaching yet another impressive career milestone.

Thank you for always keeping safety in mind as you travel across America's roadways.


Jim Gattoni
President & CEO

Now isn't that nice?  

For those of you who don't know, a BCO is a "Business Capacity Owner". At Landstar, we are not employees, we are leased owner-operators. So although we have their name on our door, we are self-employed business owners.

Every year they send pretty useful stuff.  Tote bags, computer bags, jackets, small tool kits, etc.  I literally have enough jackets to last me the rest of my life.

This year I got this awesome duffel bag on wheels.  We already have one from one of Ed's past safety awards and we use it all the time. I will definitely make use of this regularly!

Next year for my 10-year Safety Award - providing I don't do anything to screw up my perfect record - I'll get a cruise.

So if you see me on the highway, stay far, far away.  I don't want anything screwing up my trip to the Bahamas!
