ALPHARETTA, Ga. (May 30, 2023) – Colonial Pipeline Terminals was recognized for the second year in a row for exemplary safety performance by the International Liquid Terminals Association (ILTA).

These awards are a testament to our safety culture and our Zero is Possible approach to preventing incidents.”
