Holland honored truck driver Robert “RB” Wolford’s 3-million-mile safe driving milestone during an award ceremony at its Detroit service center.
Wolford was presented with a commemorative 3-million-miler jacket, truck decals, and a personalized 3-million-miler ring. Wolford was also treated to a police escort complete with flashing lights and sirens as he approached the Detroit terminal.
Wolford is a third-generation truck driver with a long list of accomplishments. He is a member of the Holland Safety Committee and a driver mentor, as well as an 11-time competitor in the Michigan Truck Driving Championship. He was the Michigan championship’s 2008 Rookie of the Year and has twice qualified for the National Truck Driving Championships. Wolford was also named the Michigan Trucking Association’s September 2019 Driver of the Month.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have good, safety-minded mentors in my career. I’m proud to be a driver mentor for Holland. I’m a firm believer in giving back. No one knows how to do it right from the get-go. It’s important to do your part, be safety-minded and lead by example,” Wolford said.
