Trucker's Final Ride

Delvin Simmons - The Old Man is Dead

Published on May 16, 2018

This year our dad, Delvin Simmons Jr., was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer. My brother came over days before Dad's first surgery and took him on a final drive in his beloved semi. During the ride, my brother recorded Dad singing his favorite song, one that he sang countless times in our little church in Vinita, OK. Dad always has said, "the Holy Spirit just moves so much in this song he can't contain himself." I hope this blesses you. Please listen all the way through and please pray for our dad.

Trucker Delvin Simmons from Tulsa, Oklahoma, a driver of 40 years, passed away early Friday morning. He inspired millions by recording his last ride before beginning his battle with colon cancer.

"Troopers will grab the semi drivers and we'll position them under the bridge so that if the person does lose their grip or they happen to jump, the fall is only a couple of feet instead of all the way down to the concrete," said Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw.

2) Doubling to 20% the company contribution to 401k. They match 20% of what we put in up to the IRS maximum.

That is amazing! I hope you are taking full advantage of it. Is that 100% match up to 20% or is it a tiered match?

2018 Best Fleets To Drive For

Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge Announce 2018 Best Fleets to Drive For

The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge are pleased to announce the 2018 Best Fleets to Drive For. These 20 for-hire trucking companies from across North America are being recognized for providing exemplary work environments for their professional truck drivers and independent contractors.

To be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies operating ten or more trucks had to receive a nomination from at least one of their company drivers or owner-operators. CarriersEdge then interviewed human resources representatives and executives of the nominated fleets regarding their corporate directions, policies, and programs. The fleets were evaluated using a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, such as total compensation package, health benefits, pension plans, professional development opportunities, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria.

Driver feedback was then compared with management's comments and incorporated into the final score, resulting in the selection of this year's winners and honorable mentions.

Here are the 2018 Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For:

• American Central Transport, Inc., Kansas City, MO

• Bison Transport, Winnipeg, MB

• Boyle Transportation, Billerica, MA

• Central Oregon Truck Company, Inc., Redmond, OR

• Challenger Motor Freight, Inc., Cambridge, ON

• Erb Group, New Hamburg, ON

• Fremont Contract Carriers, Inc., Fremont, NE

• FTC Transportation, Inc., Oklahoma City, OK

• Garner Trucking, Inc., Findlay, OH

• Grand Island Express, Inc., Grand Island, NE

• Halvor Lines, Inc., Superior, WI

• Maverick Transportation, LLC, North Little Rock, AR

• Motor Carrier Service, LLC, Northwood, OH

• Nussbaum Transportation, Hudson, IL

• Prime Inc., Springfield, MO

• Smokey Point Distributing, Arlington, WA

• Thomas E. Keller Trucking, Defiance, OH

• TLD Logistics Services, Inc., Knoxville, TN

• TransPro Freight Systems, Ltd., Milton, ON

• Veriha Trucking, Inc., Marinette, WI

Three companies, Bison Transport, Central Oregon Truck Company, and TransPro Freight Systems, have achieved the milestone of five consecutive years on the Best Fleets list.

Five companies have also been identified as "Fleets to Watch”--honorable mentions for demonstrating innovation in their driver programs:

• Bennett Motor Express, McDonough, GA

• Hoekstra Transportation, LLC, Kankakee, IL

• Larway Transportation, Barrie, ON

• LoadOne LLC, Taylor, MI

• Werner Enterprises, Omaha, NE

Sharing The Holiday Spirit

A Driver's Night Before Christmas

The days before Christmas and all down the road, The drivers’ trucks were a-rollin’ to deliver their loads.

The drivers hauled everything from freight, food to toys, to deliver to homes for good girls and boys.

The cellphones did crackle and voices filled the air, With warm season’s greetings and warnings to bear.

All across the land, the people did sleep, While drivers keep rollin’ through ice, snow and sleet

They’re pushing for delivery, food, freight and toys must arrive, They’re the backbone of our country, necessary to survive.

When the trailer is empty, they’ll get on the phone, And check with their dispatch before heading for home.

The family will greet them with hugs and with smiles, you know it’s for them that they roll all those miles.

Remember the children, remember the wife, of the driver who sacrificed, every day risked his life.

Let’s stop while we’re at it to offer a prayer, That the drivers all made it safely, that they all got there.

We can all be proud of this job that we do, These drivers and shippers depend on me and on you,

So, friends, have a safe one as they roll out of sight, Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

New Blood Pressure Guidelines Mean Yours Might Be Too High Now

New Blood Pressure Guidelines Mean Yours Might Be Too High Now

Blood pressure of 120/80 or above is considered elevated; 130/80 to 139/89 is now considered Stage 1 hypertension and anything 140/90 or above will be considered stage 2 hypertension. If blood pressure reaches 180/120 or higher — and either number in the blood pressure reading counts — people will be classified as in hypertensive crisis with need for immediate treatment or hospitalization.

Previously, people were not considered to have high blood pressure until the top reading hit 140. “Normal hasn’t changed. We are still saying that it is great and it is normal to have a systolic blood pressure reading below 120 and a diastolic reading under 80,” Whelton said.
