Keith Loging, a driver with Transport America, recently received the company’s One Million Mile Accident-Free Safety Award. Transport America also announced its April 2006 Drivers of the Month, as well as an increase in owner-operator pay, effective July 1, to 92 cents per mile on all miles – loaded and empty.
Loging, who has been driving for 11 years, has spent his entire career with Transport America, a truckload carrier based in Eagan, Minn. He says the company never has lost interest in getting to know its drivers. For the past seven years, Loging also has served Transport America as a driver instructor. As he passes along his respect for the road to his students, Loging hopes they, too, will someday reach one million accident-free miles. His advice to new drivers is simple: “Leave your temper at home. Don’t let the small things get to you.” Loging is married and has three children, ages 10, 7 and 5.
