At Melton Truck Lines, we take great pride and enthusiasm in celebrating our drivers. The most essential personnel to our company deserve to be recognized and appreciated as often as possible. In fact, one of Melton’s central traditions that defines our culture is based upon showing appreciation to our drivers. Treating them with respect and dignity while taking responsibility in making their jobs free of conflict is a large part of Melton’s successful approach to building an effective fleet.
Each month, we award two outstanding Melton drivers for our Rookie of the Month and Driver of the Month awards. Both award recipients have excelled in all areas of their air-ride flatbed job including safety, performance, productivity and much more. We feel these incredible efforts deserve to be recognized and celebrated.
This month, our Driver of the Month is Eric Shaw. Eric found his home with Melton nearly 7 years ago and has been a professional driver for 20 years. Having such extensive driving experience, we asked him what advice he would give to other drivers on being successful. Eric stated, “Keep your eyes open and pay attention. Always listen to advice and be willing to learn something new every day.”
Eric’s reason for choosing Melton was simple, “When I was searching for a new job, I heard nothing but good things about Melton and everyone here has proven I made a great decision.” He continues by saying, “Melton gives you all the right tools to get the job done.” When not on the road, Eric enjoys relaxing at his home in Norman, Oklahoma, having cookouts with family, and spending time with his grandchildren.
Melton’s Rookie of the Month is Ron Bricco. Ron has been driving professionally with Melton since June of 2016 and has excelled tremendously in his career. With a record of zero accidents or tickets, Ron is certainly fitting to the Melton standard. When asked a quote that he would like to pass along, he says, “Treat everyone as you would want to be treated, and do so courteously, with respect and humility.”
Congratulations to both Eric Shaw and Ron Bricco. We certainly appreciate your dedication and attention to detail on the job. Keep up the good work!
