Truckload giant Schneider describes its new “Haul of Fame,” which honors its safest drivers, as a “meaningful and visible way to pay respect to the best drivers on the road.”
Not just any good driver will be recognized with a plaque on this prominent wall at corporate headquarters in Green Bay. Rather, the honor will be exclusively reserved for drivers who have racked up three- million consecutive safe driving miles and/or twenty consecutive years of safe driving without an accident or safety infraction.
“We have been honoring our best drivers for achieving safety milestones, including million-mile and consecutive safe driving milestones, for a long time,” advised president & CEO Chris Lofgren. “With the Haul of Fame, we’re going the extra mile. This is the Schneider way of recognizing driver associates who reached milestones in safety and excellence that very few in our industry have achieved. It’s also tied to our #1 core value, Safety First and Always.”
Smiling before the Haul of Fame: Here are 7 of the initial 179 honorees (l-r) Merlin Lardinois, Robert “BB” Blau, Michael Darras, Bob Wyatt, Greg Swift, George Dillenberg, and Ed Woald. Collectively, these seven drivers have logged over 19 million safe miles and 175 years of consecutive safe driving.
