“Consistent miles equal consistent income,” shared Kenny Hume, National Carriers, Inc. May Driver of the Month. For the past six years, Hume has been a company driver at the “Elite” fleet. As a firstgeneration Class A CLD holder, he left a twenty-year career in retail to pursue life on the road.
“In 2005, I began driving trucks after leaving a career in retail sales. A few years later in 2011, I left the industry due to low income. I returned to retail for four years, however I wanted to come back into trucking. I did an online search looking for a quality company with good pay. I sought a situation that would provide higher income for my family. National Carriers came up in my search. I called recruiting and they made applying easy and smooth,” Hume explained.
Hume continued, “I enjoy this lifestyle – the freedom and challenges associated with being on time with my loads, plus the opportunity to see great scenery along the way. National Carriers provides their drivers with a scorecard to track our rating among other company drivers. These ratings determine recipients of quarterly bonuses in fuel economy, utilization, and safety. Drivers who are in the top 25% in these three areas earn an additional bonus and are named to the President’s Award of Excellence. I take pride in achieving this accomplishment and stay focused in attaining this recognition.”
National Carriers spokesman Ed Kentner stated, “Kenny is an outstanding representative of what our firm is focused on: safety, service, and citizenship. He does his job at the highest level, not for recognition, but as a challenge to himself to strive for perfection. Whether delivering into the heart of New York City or a rural setting, he is prompt and professional. As Driver of the Month, he received a $1000 bonus and now is a finalist for 2021 Driver of the Year, which awards the winner a $10,000 bonus.”
