In addition to naming its National Carrier of the Year, Sunoco also recognizes two other carriers for exceptional work performed at other Sunoco facilities. The additional winners are:
•Sunoco Carrier of the Year: Linden Bulk. Sunoco said Linden Bulk's Philadelphia PA terminal serves Sunoco's Frankford facility, safely handling phenol, alpha methylstyrene, acetone, toluene, and xylene shipments with a high level of customer satisfaction.

Carrier safety performances are based on accident and spill rates, as well as compliance with facility guidelines.

Customer satisfaction evaluation criteria include customer complaint frequency, claims experience and internal customer surveys.
