Connecting Drivers and Companies

In my 30 years in the trucking industry, I have seen a lot of hi-tech tool applications. What is missing is hi-touch communication, growth, value and connection. I believe this disconnect is the reason for most driver issues.

What if companies and drivers had a better work/life integration? I believe this is the missing piece.

This is why we’ve created The Mindful Trucker Institute for Professional Development, a platform designed to help companies improve a healthier company culture and attract and retain the best people.
