A team from Lubbock, Texas has been named drivers of the month for a major carrier.
Lisa Peal and Louis Jones were named drivers of the month for Dec. 17 by National Carriers, Inc. The owner operators transport freight on the National Carriers Southwest Regional Fleet. They now are finalists for NCI Driver of the Year, which will be announced during a company award ceremony in April.
Each driver of the month receives a $500 bonus.
“Neither Lisa or myself come from over-the-road-trucking backgrounds,” said Jones. “When we bought our truck, I asked a friend for advice. He told me he had driven for National Carriers in the past and if he were still driving, this is where he would be. I decided to give it a try and that was three years ago. Lisa joined me as a co-driver this past summer.”
“I joined Louis on the truck this year,” said Peal. “I know it gets lonely when he is by himself for weeks at a time on the road. Together, we have a plan for our future and we are working hard to accomplish our goals through National Carriers.”
“Louis and Lisa are very quiet people and easy to get along with,”said Operations Manager Shaun Berry. “NCI can always count on them in times of need and to do their job every day. We appreciate them for what they do for our company and enjoy working with them,”
National Carriers is a diversified carrier located in Irving, Texas serving the 48 continental states with refrigerated, livestock, and logistics services.
