Clayton, Ala. – Boyd Bros. Transportation, a top 20 finalist in the Truckload Carriers Association’s 2011 Best Fleets to Drive For, recently recognized company driver Stevie Verges for reaching two million miles of safe driving during his 16-year career with the company. This achievement, which requires drivers to have a record free of accidents or incidents, takes many years of hard work, commitment and a solid relationship with their company.
“I tell other drivers that it’s important to keep their trucks between the lines and upright,” said Verges. “If you pay attention, you’re able to react to what the other drivers on the road are doing.”
The company threw a large celebration for Verges’ accomplishment and presented him with a trophy, company patches, a belt buckle and plaque. Verges also received a bonus check from Boyd, thanking him for his hard work and dedication.
“My trainer at Boyd challenged me to at least get a million safe miles,” said Verges. “After I reached the first million, I figured I might as well go for the second. It’s a great feeling having achieved that goal.”
As a company that is extremely supportive of its drivers, Boyd Bros., says Verges, helps drivers with whatever they need while teaching them how to be professional and creating a family-oriented atmosphere.
“Boyd does exactly what they say they’re going to do,” said Verges. “You can’t ask for anything better than that.”
Verges especially appreciates the flexible home time he receives from Boyd Bros., which allows him to return to his family in Ypsilanti, Mich., often. Verges and his wife Angela have three children who are extremely active in school and sports. The home time Verges receives from Boyd Bros. allows him to see his children’s competitions.
