Why 2014 is a Great Time to Become a Smith Transport DriverJanuary 20, 2014 5:56 pm Comment
Becoming a Smith Transport Driver is a lot like joining an elite group of professional drivers. It’s obvious in the truck a Smith driver drives, in the work culture he is part of, in what he experiences on the road, and in the pay and benefits he takes home.
Here’s a more in-depth look.
Driving a First-Rate Truck
In the last quarter of 2013, Smith purchased 50 latest model of International Lonestar trucks to its fleet. It was truly an early holiday gift to drivers. They were kept warm, comfortable and secure especially during the winter. Lonestar trucks came equipped with improved operational features usually not available in other models and brands. These features alone help make the driving experience enjoyable, convenient and stress-free.
Living the Normal Way of Life
Normal is good. Normal means free from unnecessary stress. Most drivers in the industry suffer from overwork or burnout. Smith drivers don’t.
While it’s true that Smith is classified as a “Mega Carrier,” the company’s headquarters is in its quaint hometown of Roaring Spring, PA. That’s why Smith is able to maintain its prestige in the market without the burden and headaches often assumed by a large corporation. Smith Transport drivers are able to live a normal way of life in a community where neighbors are friendly and family values are kept.
