The 2020 OmniTRAX Safe Shipper Award recipients on the PNR are Agrium US, Brenntag Southwest, Chevron Phillips, Orion Engineered Carbons, Phillips 66 Company, Tokai Carbon CB and Van Waters & Rogers. A $1,000 contribution was made in the name of each company.

“At OmniTRAX, safety is our top priority each day, so we are proud to recognize our local shipping partners that have earned spotless shipping safety records,” said OmniTRAX CEO Dean Piacente. “We honor their commitment to safety by making a community donation to our first responders from the Borger Fire Department that are dedicated to keeping the Borger community safe.”

Borger Fire Department Chief Bob Watson said, “The Borger Fire Department has a great relationship with the Panhandle Northern Railroad and OmniTRAX. We share the common goal of community safety and this generous donation will help us serve Borger by keeping our community safe.” PNR Community Event
