National Carriers Driver of the MonthIrving, TX - Tyler Claussen has been named October Driver of the Month for National Carriers, Inc. The 30-year-old Claussen lives in Garden City, KS and works as a fleet driver within the NCI livestock division. A father of two, he is also an accomplished Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitor, recently placing third in a national competition.

When notified of his selection, Claussen laughingly said, “I never get a call from the livestock manager, so when he called I was afraid I had done something wrong. When he told me I was selected as Driver of the Month I wasn’t sure what the award was. I didn’t even know National Carriers had this recognition. I just go to work every day and do my job. I do appreciate being nominated and winning the award.”

Director of the NCI livestock division, Jason Greer stated, “Tyler Claussen excels at his job. He is safety conscientious whether driving his truck or handling cattle. He is an excellent example of a young, professional driver who leads by example and listens to advice from our more experienced cattle haulers. National Carriers is fortunate to have him on our team.”

Each Driver of the Month is a finalist for NCI Driver of the Year 2016. Monthly award winners receive a $500 bonus. National Carriers Driver of the Year is awarded a $5000 prize at the NCI Driver of the Year Banquet held in Arlington, Texas in the spring of 2017.
