What I Learned Riding Shotgun - My First Trip in a Big Rig
On Tuesday, January 16th, I went on my first ride-along with one of Dart’s most experienced owner operators. Steve Drexler, one of only a few contractors with 30 years of trucking under his belt, was kind enough to have me as his co-pilot for the day. As one of Dart’s new interns, I am very new to the industry so I went into the trip loaded with questions for Steve.

Steve Arrowsmith, Driver of the Month
Twenty-three years: it is an enormous amount of time. For some it is an entire lifetime; for others, it is just a snapshot of yesterday. How have you spent the last 23 years? Back in March of 1993, Steve Arrowsmith took a chance and gave Dart a call. It was a chance he wanted to take after hearing from many drivers that it was a good company to drive for. Fast forward to 2016 and Steve is still going strong. Steve was recently named Driver of the Month by Dartco, Inc. – which he was very excited to hear about. “It’s an honor,” said Steve. “I am just doing my job and I was awarded with this.

Meals on the Go: How a Passion for Cooking Led to a Dartco Driver Becoming a Published Author

Eric Rickard, Driver of the Month
Congratulations to Eric Rickard, the Dart Network’s Driver of the Month! When Eric got out of the army in 1990 and back into civilian life, he wanted a job out of the ordinary. A job that wasn’t the same old thing every day, not a job where he would be stuck behind a desk. That’s when he looked into the trucking industry and the rest is history.
