Xcellence In Safety

Xcel Bulk Logistics
is led by its core values,
and first among them is
Xcellence in Safety.

A safe operation can deliver on its promises to customers, but our first responsibility is to keep our team members and the communities we work and live in safe. Delivering on this commitment begins with a culture where every employee is bought into our motto of “Be A Zero” – starting with our personal responsibilities, we are mindful and prudent in our work and we hold our co-workers at every level to the same standard. Only together can we build a team that supports and reinforces safety and Xcellence.

Here are a few specific ways XBL puts safety first:

  • Equipment specific training at onboarding and on ongoing basis.
  • Pre-hire and random drug and alcohol testing.
  • Company issued and required PPE.
  • 24/7/365 assistance for breakdowns, accidents, or customer concerns.
  • Driver safety bonus program.
  • Rigorous screening procedures to check all applicable government compliance and verify experience.
  • State-of-the-art and well-maintained tractors and trailers.
  • XBL inspection of customer sites.
