Congratulations to our March Featured Driver of the Month, Rich!
Rich was first inspired to become a truck driver back in the 1960’s when he saw all of the big guys driving in New York City. He considered becoming a lawyer after serving in the military for 25 years, but he liked the idea of making his own decisions, so he bought a truck and started a career on the open road!
He drives a 2016 Freightliner Coronado that’s equipped with everything he needs to get the job done – from electric brakes, to a pintle hook and ball hitch, to a locking long slide. He also holds his tankers, doubles, and triples endorsements!
Rich has been with Powersource Transportation for 6 years. His favorite type of freight are the ones that are hooked up and ready to roll, which is why Powersource is the perfect fit for him!
His favorite part about driving a truck for a living is that he gets to be his own boss and make all of the decisions. He always brings the love of Christ with him on the road, which has resulted in good vibes and friendships. Whenever he is at a truck stop, he likes to have bible studies and give bibles to fellow truckers that don’t have one.
When Rich is not on the road, you’ll find him at home in Eastover, SC with his wife of 48 years, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He enjoys riding his Harleys and is looking forward to spending some quality time in the new RV!
Congratulations, Rich! We’re so proud that you are part of the Powersource family!
