The Superior, Wisconsin based trucking and logistics company has been named a "Best Fleet to Drive For," year after year, as they continually show dedication to drivers' health, safety, and happiness.
Its commitment to recognizing and rewarding drivers is a priority, which is why Halvor Lines is going all out for this years Driver Appreciation Week.
Driver Appreciation Week, is a chance for the trucking and logistics industry to recognize the people who make it all possible. The company plans to celebrate with breakfast and lunch all week for drivers, a driver Olympics competition, wellness fair, and even a car show on Friday.
Beginning this week, Halvor Lines will recognize those entering the Million Miles Club, a club for drivers who have reached one to four million miles with the company. It takes around eight years for a driver to reach one million miles, so earning this award shows dedication as a driver and for the company.
"Driver who reach this impressive milestone are presented with a trophy and decals for their trucks form our CEO Jon Vinje, or vice president Ryan Fraley," said Debbie Landry, Director of Driver Services at Halvor Lines. "We're exceptionally proud of the drivers earning this award."
The wellness fair on Thursday will include a 5K race, vendors on-site, and a blood drive. Staying healthy on the road is a challenge for drivers, but Halvor promotes wellness with complimentary fruit in the office and exercise equipment.
Company trucks also are equipped with refrigerators, so drivers can prepare their own food before leaving instead of relying on fast food stops. Part of recognizing their drivers this week is about commending their commitment to health and wellness.
These events give drivers a chance to interact with each other in a fun and relaxed setting.
