NTDAW is quickly approaching!
Styer has been busy making preperations for our upcoming driver week here in Lakeville.
Our vendor partners have stepped up once again and have been donating many tokens, gifts, and few major prizes to hand out to our driver team!
NTDAW is an important time for America to pay respect and thank all the professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in undertaking one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. This years NTDAW takes on a special significance considering the crucial role truck drivers have played during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here at Styer, we’ll have plenty of food, fun, and prizes for our drivers all week. Our office team really enjoys this week each year too! We love to see all the drivers that can make it, enjoy sitting down and breaking some bread with you!
David Lathe has been chosen as our 2021 Styer Star!
David Lathe has been a driver with Styer for over 15 years now. He brings years of experience and a willingness to share his knowledge.
Of recent news out at our customer Johnny Pops, David has made strong gains with the little kids at the day care next door. A situation where there was some concerns with the heavy equipment and nearby children, David has won over all the kids and made great efforts to be kind, visible, and nothing to fear.
David is a great steward for the industry (and Styer Transportation), his recent attention to those kids points directly to the community we service for Johnny pops. After 15 years with Styer, we know David as a good man, mentor, and quality professional who represents the Styer values exceptionally well.
In Quarter 2 of this year, Styer Transportation has reached a new milestone and paid out more BONUS money than ever before! Congrats to all of our drivers for keeping it safe, fewer accidents equals more bonus money!
Things were a little different in the early nineties compared to today in
the trucking industry. Back then Styer was running trailers to Chicago just
like we do today. Mike was in a group of about 5 or 6 Styer drivers that
ran this corridor, having a little fun along the way. “It was repetitive, you
know what you are doing, which brings ease to the job.” “Nothing better
than what you did yesterday, you know the route, you know the facilities,
and with repetition things become routine.”
Hey Styer drivers, don’t miss out on your chance to earn a few extra bucks! Any driver referral to Styer will net you a quick $1,000.00!
When it comes to dispatching our drivers, Styer’s most experienced DM always brings a calm demeanor and thoughtful solutions to a range of daily dispatching issues. There is a ton that goes into load planning and dispatching that most folks probably don’t realize. We have to think about the customers, the drivers, the weather, the timing, etc. So when things get rocky, it is great to lean on the experience Mark brings to the table.
