CRST Expedited Inc. Honors 17 Drivers for Safely Driving 1 Million-Plus Miles

 

CRST International President and CEO Hugh Ekberg, COO Mike Gannon and their leadership team joined 300 CRST Expedited team members at a reception for the million-mile honorees and their families at Theater Cedar Rapids (TCR). Following the reception, John Smith, CRST owner and board chairman, joined the senior leadership team in presenting the award ceremony, which was followed by a private showing of “My Fair Lady.”

“I love helping people get started in truck driving.”

I always tell drivers to remember their comfort zone, keep your guard up and always stay one step ahead. And don’t forget to use a lot of common sense. If you can handle driving a truck, you can handle just about anything.
GILBERT WEEKLEY
32-year veteran CRST driver
4 million miles

Gilbert Weekley of Paden City, West Virginia, has lived CRST’s safety-first mantra for the past 32 years and has reached a significant career milestone — driving more than 4 million miles without an accident. Weekley learned the professional driving trade from CRST, which has become one of the largest driver-training organizations in the truck transportation industry. He later became a driver trainer, instilling the same cautious attitude and by-the-book safety procedures in close to 150 student drivers over nearly a decade.

We are extremely proud of our drivers’ safety records. It amazes us to see that our safety values are more than just heard, they’re delivered — our million milers prove this day-in and day-out. We’d like to take a moment to thank and highlight our most successful drivers and extend our gratitude for their service.
