Contractor’s Corner By: Teresa Minick
As we say good bye to 2011 and hello to 2012, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the Contractors, Agents and Dispatchers who made it such a successful year for all of us at Sammons.
We started 2011 with renewed optimism and adopted the motto “Operator Success = Sammons Success”. Who would have known how true it would hold and it is certainly reflected in our contractors’ truck earnings. The top ten lists for Heavy Haul and Regular Fleet will be posted in our next issue of the Scramble.
Also in 2011, we rolled out the quarterly Contractor conference calls to keep all of you informed on the company and stepped up our email communications in regards to industry and trucking news. Then in October, Phil rolled out the monthly Safety conference calls and those are held the second Wednesday of every month.
So what does 2012 hold in store for us? January 20th is Sammons’ 50th Anniversary! In this day an age, how many companies can have those bragging rights and hope you can join us at our celebration party. Forecasters say truck availability will remain tight and our shipping clients are asking for greater capacity which should keep our rate levels where we need them to be. We want to continue to grow the fleet with safe, professional operators so hope you will keep the referrals coming.
To you and your families, here’s to a safe, healthy and happy New Year and again, thank you for being part of the Sammons Team!
