Hansen & Adkins Auto Transport is one of the most elite auto haulers in the industry and is successful for a number of reasons. Lance Willis, Director of Driver Relations, says it has a lot to do with their customer base. “Relationships we’ve built over the years differentiate us. We have a solid foundation with our large customer base. This enables us to offer local, regional or long haul runs, less deadhead and percentage pay resulting in more money with less miles.”
The auto hauling industry requires someone who is not afraid to roll up their sleeves, but the rewards are far better than other types of driving opportunities. “I feel we provide our drivers the kind of options that allows them to run the lanes they prefer, while making some of the best pay in the industry,” Willis said. “We also focus on maintaining our tight-knit community of elite drivers. It’s a great environment for any driver to enjoy his or her job and be successful at it.”
Hansen & Adkins is looking to add experienced drivers to its fleet, preferably those that have been driving for two or more years. There are also opportunities for drivers and owner operators with no auto hauling experience to receive professional training. If someone has the passion to haul vehicles and wants to make a career of it, Hansen & Adkins is the best option.
Along with a lucrative pay package, the company provides bonus pay if drivers meet the required criteria for the year. “We utilize the Driver Scorecard system to help our drivers see their productivity levels and how they compare with other drivers,” Willis said. “This builds morale and teamwork among our driver force. We also have tailgate and quarterly safety meetings and reward those with excellent safety records.”
Hansen & Adkins is technology driven but still maintains a family oriented culture. “We invest a lot into our drivers and our trucks. Our fleet on average is less than four years old. Our future depends on providing superior service to our customers, and we do that by recruiting, hiring and retaining the best drivers. Our turnover rate is one of the lowest in the industry,” Willis said.
Throughout the last decade, Hansen & Adkins has been recognized as the “Best of the Best” and “Partner of the Year” by several manufacturers and associations. For more information on how you can join the Hansen & Adkins team, please visit http://www.hansenadkins.com or call 888-525-8880.
