Insurance guy rides in a truck (part 3 of 3)

I log a lot of windshield time. I’ve shared the road with more semis than I can count. But I had never been in a semi.

And that sounds like an important piece of the puzzle to be missing. And maybe a bit out of touch.

I was paired with a rock star of a driver who was key to helping me fully digest the driver experience. Here’s more of what I learned by cruising with Leroy for a day:

Top performing company – from a driver’s perspective

I look at my client’s trucking operation as elite. They’ve executed long term, profitable growth, they have happy drivers & high retention, they excel at employee engagement despite the long-distance nature of the industry and they have an enthusiastic and diverse team of leaders. And most importantly they’re never satisfied and are constantly chasing their next level.

I log a lot of windshield time. I’ve shared the road with more semis than I can count – taking note of load securement, equipment, logo and call-to-action for aspiring drivers. I have met with countless truck leaders, have interviewed their drivers, have digested the reg books alongside them and have even kicked off driver meetings. I’m very much in transportation.

But I had never been in a semi.
