"Through our 1,800 professional drivers and 1,300 trucks, we deliver millions of gallons of fuel to Love’s stores and other locations in the industry and safety is always top of mind for every team member at Gemini,” said Brent Bergevin, executive vice president of Transportation at Love’s.

The award aims to recognize companies that prioritize safety, protect their drivers and contribute to overall industry safety. Criteria for the award includes safety record, driver training and qualifications, vehicle maintenance, compliance and regulations, industry involvement and advocacy, and data reporting and accuracy.

Gemini’s commitment to safety begins in the interview process where Gemini's code of conduct is presented for the first time. From there, each driver learns of the company’s high employee expectations, strict safety protocols, and are introduced to the advanced technology in every vehicle. Each Gemini truck has new collision avoidance features that include side-object detection, backup alarms, brake assistance, speed intervention and traffic sign recognition.
