Favorite Trucking Memory

I’ve closed a lot of transactions that have helped truck lines and owners move forward but it’s when I visit with career truck drivers, the ones with a million safe miles, and hear what their career has meant to them that its puts it all into perspective, work we can be proud of that takes care of our families.
