Driver, Gary Teel, reached 3.5 million ‘spotless’ miles during his 25-year career at Weinrich Truck Line Inc., last week!
On his return trip to the Weinrich terminal (from dropping off a honey load Wednesday, September 3rd), he received a warm welcome!
A truck ordered to Teel’s specifications was presented to him in recognition of his loyalty to the company and flawless record.
Teel was presented with a ‘gold amber pearl’ 2015 Freightliner Coronado featuring a 505-HP Detroit engine, 13 speeds, and air-disk brakes! The best part? – It’s all his for the remainder of his employment with Weinrich!
In addition, Teel’s getting a refrigerator, television, microwave, carpeted sleeper, and for the first time in his four-decade long driving career: heated seats!
Teel has been driving for Weinrich since 1988, and a full time over-the-road truck driver since 1974! He estimates that he’s driven about 4 million miles.
During an interview with the WCF Courier, Teel shared his most memorable piece of advice from a veteran driver:
Additionally: Gary has been nominated for the Iowa Motor Truck Association: ‘Driver of the Year’ award.
– Great work, driver!
