CN Safe Handling Award

May 23, 2022 /CSRwire/ - Marathon Petroleum and MPLX G&P (registered under MarkWest Energy) earned the 2021 Gold Safe Handling Award from Canadian National (CN) for shipping rail cars on CN lines with zero non-accidental releases (NARs) last year. This award recognizes our commitment to the safe handling of regulated products.

“It is certainly not an easy achievement, and Marathon should be very proud of this accomplishment,” said Greg Smith, CN Sr. National Account Manager, Petroleum & Chemicals.

According to CN, the Safe Handling Award is presented to customers who load freight cars with dangerous goods and meet strict standards for the safe handling and shipment of regulated products.

“It’s a testament to the employees who inspect, load, secure and prepare the rail cars for transportation,” said Robert Stumpf, Rail Fleet Manager. “They have buttoned up these cars. We take our responsibility very seriously, and this award means we are doing an excellent job.”

The company has earned the gold level award eight times since 2003.
