Editor’s Note: Welcome to View From the Top, a new series for Truckers News. In each feature, we’ll talk with one of trucking’s leaders about how their company and the industry are dealing with the unprecedented challenges and changes wrought by the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
In these dispiriting COVID-19 days, the Facebook posts of most trucking companies fall into one of several categories:
- thanking drivers for their continued work in the face of the coronavirus
- letting drivers know food, masks and hand sanitizer are available at their terminals
- reminding the rest of the world how bad things would be if truckers weren’t doing their jobs
Then there’s this one from April 28 by Kaedon Steinert:
“As the President of Hurricane Express, I am taking absolutely no compensation of any kind for the year 2020 in response to CV-19. This means no company car, health or life insurance, no personal bills paid in any manner out of anything transportation related. No loopholes. My wife, children, and self will in no way financially benefit for the work performed in this calendar year.
