November 07, 2012
DALLAS (Nov. 7, 2012)– Dependable Auto Shippers(DAS), one of the largest auto transport companies in the U.S. since 1954, recently inducted its twenty-first driver into the Haul of Fame, an awards program recognizing outstanding DAS drivers who have accumulated million-mile increments accident-free.
The most recent Haul of Fame award recipients include: Donald Walker and Charles Holloway with three million miles; Jeff Crisp, Donnie Parsons, Michael Ray, Gary Buntin (posthumously) and Ryan Barr with two million miles; and Leroy Floyd, Don Odems, Derrick Lee and Michael Benson with one million miles.
“DAS is proud to employ such a large number of exceptional drivers and applauds this group’s hard work and well-deserved recognition,” stated John Roehll, executive vice president of DAS. “The Haul of Fame awards program demonstrates DAS’ ongoing commitment to unmatched standards for safety and service, and we’re excited to watch the program grow as more DAS drivers make the grade.”
To qualify for the DAS Haul of Fame, drivers must have accumulated at least one million miles of accident-free driving throughout their entire career. DAS references industry standards when classifying accident-free miles as mileage that does not include recordable, preventable collisions. Once a driver qualifies for the Haul of Fame, they are given a personalized award and crest-shaped sticker to proudly display on their truck. In addition, each recipient’s name is added to a plaque hanging in the DAS corporate office.
“When we launched the Haul of Fame, we saw it as a way to thank our drivers for their hard work and attention to safety,” added Roehll. “As the program has grown, it’s highlighted what an elite group of drivers we have at DAS. Especially when you consider the challenges and situations our drivers face on a daily basis, one million miles without an accident is truly a remarkable accomplishment.”
