Anchor Tanks Lines has received several awards from the energy industry in recognition of its superior service. ConocoPhillips has twice recognized the company, awarding the Superior Service Award in 2003 and its Excellence in Business Support Award in 2005. According to ConocoPhillips, the second-largest oil refinery in the United States, Anchor Tank Lines routinely exceeded expectations and always communicated in a timely and effective manner. Shell Oil, ExxonMobil, and British Petroleum have also recognized Anchor Tank Lines. Awards from these companies included Shell’s Excellence in Safety Performance Award, Exxon’s Safety and On-time Performance Awards, and British Petroleum’s Fleet Appearance and Customer Satisfaction Award. Lastly, at the 2007 Shell Oil Conference in Houston, Texas, Anchor Tank Lines took the Outstanding Service Award for delivering Shell cargo without any spills, injuries, accidents or other incidents in 2006.
Anchor Truck Lines has also been recognized by New York City, which awarded it the Eternal Vigilance Award, and by the U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals and Motorsports Spectacular.
