National Carriers, Inc. (NCI) is pleased to announce Drivers of the Month for March and April of 2020.

Anthony Olvera of Houston, Texas, earned the award for March, having demonstrated impeccable safety and service for three years in NCI’s Southwest Regional Fleet. His skill is no surprise given his 28 years behind the wheel and training that began even earlier.

“My father was a driver. When I was eleven or twelve, I would ride with him. It was the seventies, diesel was sixty cents a gallon, the speed limit was fifty-five miles an hour, and I learned how to drive while with him. Dad emphasized backing and as I grew older he taught me how to back into any dock situation,” Olvera shared.

Owner operator, Charles Ware, of Sylacauga, Alabama, won Driver of the Month for April. As someone who’s hauled a variety of freight over the years—from cotton in his hometown to food across the nation—he’s a big fan of the loads NCI offers.

“The loads are the best,” he said. “The freight has good miles and adequate time to get to the delivery point.”

National Carriers spokesman, Ed Kentner, commented, “Both Anthony and Charles are fine representatives of the professional drivers at NCI. They are safety oriented, customer friendly, and quick to help anyone in need. Each earned a bonus for their recognition and are now finalists for Driver of the Year and its $10,000 prize.”
