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 trucking career 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 David Knight. David has been with Melton for 16 years now and has been driving since 1979. When asked what sets Melton apart from other companies, David states, “It’s more like family here.” When he’s not on the road, David enjoys riding and building motorcycles along with going fishing.
Melton’s Rookie of the Month is James Edwards. James has been with Melton since October of 2016 and has attained a Driver Score Card performance level of Platinum. When asked his favorite quote, he states, “Make a plan and work your plan.”
Congratulations to both David Knight and James Edwards. We certainly appreciate your dedication and attention to detail on the job. Keep up the good work!
