Because of the nature of the job and because of the nature of the commodities that we are transporting, we need to focus our attention on safe operations every day. That is a benchmark of the service that we provide. We spend a great deal of time, money and effort on our safety program. I brag upon my drivers anywhere and everywhere I go. They do a fantastic job. I will put my guys up against anybody in the industry.

I’ve been here 9 years. Great people to work for who treat their drivers with respect and you are a name, not a number. In fact, your dispatcher will know you by name. Yes, we work 24/7, but you have a great amount of home time. I don’t see myself leaving for a long time.
