Today I received my award for 2 years of On Time Delivery. The gold ring has a diamond and my initials engraved. As additional awards, they will embed additional diamonds. I am eligible for a second diamond in April. Pretty Sweet!!! Previous awards included money, jackets and leather duffle bags.

I thought it important to point out that proper time management and trip planning can lead to consistent on time delivery as well as trust from dispatch. With the right attitude and communication with dispatch, on time delivery over long periods is absolutely doable. As with most things in trucking, it is about self discipline and personal responsibility.Its okay to mess up, but accept it and learn from it. Why were you late and how do you prevent it next time?

It also shows people who claim mega carriers do not care about their drivers and treat us as just numbers are wrong. I always feel appreciated and like family.Its amazing that 18 years at the USPS, I never got anything like this. I usually didnt even get a thank you and often had to argue with management to process the mail correctly. what a change

So hang in there and learn that trip planning

Congratulations Rainy! This is a tremendous accomplishment.

We are all in the customer service business! And Rainy clearly gets that...

Although we all move a variety of freight through different geographies in different equipment; we all share the same objective. Get it there, every time, on-time and safely. Take care of the customer and your employer will take care of you.

Congrats Rainy! That is an awesome achievement! I love everything you said also:

That is so true. People hear that truckers are in demand and so many of them enter this industry thinking that the trucking industry should consider itself lucky to have them. They don't put in the effort, they don't commit to performing at a high level, and then they're outraged when they can't get any miles or special favors.

The trucking industry doesn't just need CDL holders. The industry needs dedicated, trustworthy, hardworking drivers that know how to get the job done safely and consistently. That is a rare driver indeed, as any experienced driver will tell you.

Rainy, you truly are one of the elite and we're lucky to have you around to demonstrate to people what a Top Tier Professional really is and how well you'll be treated in return for your outstanding performance.

Folks, prove to your company you're one of the elite and you'll be treated that way. All of the crybabies and doomsayers you'll find on YouTube and in other forums simply couldn't perform at a high level but still expected to be treated like heros.

You've heard the expression, "Fake it til you make it." Well that might be possible if you work in an office or you're knitting blankets. But there's no faking it in trucking. The phonies and the wannabes get exposed quickly. It takes total commitment and consistent performance to thrive in this industry.

Most people can't hack it, but Rainy sure can!

Congrats!

When I first applied to Prime I was hoping I would draw you as my mentor Rainy. Due to my own doing I didn’t qualify. But I keep learning & reading your posts have helped me tremendously even though I haven’t even taken my permit test yet.

Congratulations! Continued success! May I follow such a professional example in you, & so many others on here, on how to succeed in this new chapter of my life.

Hats off to you!

Congratulations Rainy! Happy for you and glad that good things still happen to people that apply themselves. I've learned so much from you and the other regular contributors (e.g. Brett, Old School, G-Town, Errol, Big Scott, Unholychaos, gladhand, and others). I've only been visiting this site for a short time, but in that short time you all have helped me decide to jump in, get a CLP in one try, start and complete private school, and get my CDL on first attempt. Because of you all and this site, I know that I still have tons to learn. While I don't yet comprehend the subtleties and nuances of how to be a top tier driver, I know through all of you sharing your experiences what to look for and work on.

Starting with Roehl January 29th in Conley, GA. Congrats again and thanks.
