Kenny Wagers, Chief Operating Officer and Interim President, LTL – North America
Since joining XPO, I’ve been impressed time and again by the professionalism of the more than 13,000 LTL drivers in North America who transport freight for our customers. Our drivers are on the front lines daily. A big part of our success is due to their commitment.
Every day, I see proof that XPO drivers are among the finest in the industry. It’s evident in the safety skills of truckers like Mary Kile, who’s one of a handful of our drivers worldwide to achieve an amazing 3 million miles accident-free. It’s reflected in the talents of our 27 US state driving champions, who recently represented XPO at the National Truck Driving Championships. Less public, but just as important, are the thousands of drivers who pick up and deliver freight on time, trip after trip.
Many of our drivers trained for their commercial licenses at our XPO driver schools. We’re proud to provide this path to a rewarding career, and to maintain one of the lowest turnover rates in the industry.
This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week in North America. And, while our terminals will be holding celebrations to honor our drivers, I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation personally:
Thank you to all of our XPO drivers. I’m proud to be part of your team.
