UPS announced the induction of 1,412 men and women into the Circle of Honor, an elite group of UPS drivers who have been among the safest drivers on the road and have not had an avoidable accident for 25 years or more. With those new inductees, the Circle of Honor now includes 10,779 of UPS’s active brown-clad drivers.
As a global pandemic made their services more important than ever, UPS drivers continued to help deliver three percent of the world’s GDP – averaging over 20 million packages per day in 2020, from important documents and just-in-time business inventory to food, clothing, and even critical PPE along with millions of doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Safe driving is a focus for all UPS drivers, who as a group log close to 3.5 billion miles per year and deliver 5.5 billion packages annually. Collectively, active UPS Circle of Honor drivers have driven about 15 billion miles without so much as a fender-bender.
“I send my sincere appreciation to all of our drivers, and a special ‘Thank You’ to our Circle of Honor members. Your commitment to safety is part of what makes UPS great.”UPS CEO Carol Tomé
In addition to drivers in the U.S., this year’s Circle of Honor includes new members from Canada, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Mexico, Singapore and Taiwan.
Last Year, UPS inducted 1316 drivers into this elite group.
