Prime Inc, the Springfield MO-based refrigerated carrier, is partnering with the Missouri Motor Carriers to distribute a new audio CD that will train drivers on how to be part of the United States Department of Homeland Security's Highway Watch program. Prime is the first trucking company in Missouri to use this training format.

Having the training in audio format decreases the time needed for training over-the-road truck drivers to recognize potential safety and security threats and avoid becoming a target of terrorists. “Drivers can now be trained as they do their jobs instead of waiting weeks to schedule and participate in an instructor-delivered seminar,” said Robert Low, president and founder of Prime.

Ross Nichols, director of member services for the Missouri Motor Carriers, hand-delivered the CDs to Prime to begin distributing them to the firm's 3,300 drivers.
