Rex Tyler: Two Million Miles and Counting
Rex Tyler recently hit an impressive achievement. He’s driven not one million miles with TransAm Trucking, but TWO. Rex started with TransAm Trucking in September 1999 and he’s still trucking along.
Last Friday TransAm held an award ceremony for Rex where he received his leather, Two Million Mile jacket. During the ceremony, staff members thanked Rex for his dedication and safety record. (Rex is consistently one of TransAm’s Top Performers.) But the most touching moment came from Rex himself. After receiving his jacket, Rex looked around the room and said, “Thank you to everyone here, because without you no one would get one of these (he points to the jacket on his arm).”
This was a powerful reminder that trucking is a team effort. Everyone from the Driver/Business Managers to Driver Payroll to the Drivers themselves are important. Their cooperation ensures America’s goods get where they need to go. Thank you, Rex, for being a shining example of why trucking is a noble industry.
