Decker Truck Line Names March Drivers of the Month

April 13, 2012

Decker Truck Line, Inc. is pleased to announce that Rodney Knapp and Dale Leman have been chosen as the company’s March 2012 Drivers of the Month.

Rodney Knapp was selected as Driver of the Month in the Reefer-Van Division. Knapp was nominated by his dispatcher, Gary Northrop, who said “Rodney has been very helpful on covering loads that kept him out on weekends. Rodney is always pleasant to work with.” Knapp has driven for Decker for 21 years.

Dale Leman was chosen as the Flatbed Division’s Driver of the Month.

Leman’s dispatcher, Sue Anderson, says, “Dale is an excellent driver. He works hard, does his job very well, doesn’t complain and will work into weekends when needed.” Leman and his wife Lezlee are the parents of five children.

In addition to winning a Decker gift certificate, both of these drivers will now be eligible to compete for Driver/Owner-Operator of the Year. This year-end recognition of one driver from each division brings a 1-cent-per-mile pay increase for twelve months.

Decker’s Drivers of the Month are selected by their dispatchers based on overall performance within all areas of the company, including operational productivity, safety record, maintenance/care of equipment, payroll, billing and customer service.

Founded in 1931, Decker Truck Line, Inc. is a diversified carrier, transporting flatbed, refrigerated and dry van freight to the 48 contiguous states and seven Canadian provinces.
