Armour Driver Reaches 4M Accident-Free Miles

Georges LeBlanc, a former Canadian National Driver of the Year, has become the first ever Armour Transportation Systems driver to rack up four million accident-free miles with the company.

LeBlanc started his career with Armour at the age of 14, working part-time for company founder Gordon Armour, handbombing freight during the summers. He took an interest in driving and took to the highway after the completion of high school.

In November, LeBlanc was presented with the company's first ever Four Million Mile Award. The latest accolade comes six years after LeBlanc won the Canadian Driver of the Year award. When asked what has contributed to his stellar safety record, LeBlanc said: "I always allow time for unexpected delays. By doing this, I don't get stressed or have to rush to meet scheduled appointment times."

LeBlanc's driving career spans 39 years and he still drives today, normally to North Sydney or the Quebec border, the company says. Armour Transportation has 16 drivers who have at least three million accident-free miles, 111 drivers with two million and 421 professionals who have reached the one million mile mark.

"The commitment and professionalism displayed by all of our employees is the foundation upon which Armour Transportation Systems is built," the company said in a release.
