    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]OK, no one is more surprised than me. A couple years ago this was an idea that was being hashed out on TTR with a long list of bashers saying it couldn't work, wouldn't work and what do we know. But not only are we still kicking we got an Honorable Mention as a Best Fleet To Drive For because of our business model.[/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]
    We owe a lot to our drivers but we also owe a lot to all of you here on TTR - even the haters. This is where I learned, tested and grew the idea that is now Farm2Fleet Trucking. This award is as much for you as it is for our drivers.

    Thank you
