FOR THE RECORD
The Truckload Carriers Association and Truckers News named John Moeller as grand prizewinner of 2011 Company Driver of the Year competition March 6 at the TCA annual convention in Kissimmee, Fla. Moeller drives for Roehl Transport Inc., of Marshfield, Wis.
Sponsored by Cummins Inc. and Ram, the Company Driver of the Year contest recognizes and pays tribute to the top company drivers in the United States and Canada. Moeller was selected based on safe driving, efforts to enhance the public image of the trucking industry, and positive contributions to his community.
Larry Severson, leased to Dart Transit, was selected as the Overdrive/TCA 2011 Owner-Operator of the Year.
Moeller has been a truck driver for 31 years, all of them with Roehl. He has driven more than 4.1 million accident-free miles. He has been selected as the Roehl Driver of the Year several times and has earned numerous company awards for performance. In addition, he has been a member of the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association’s President’s Safe Driving Club for several years.
As the 2011 Company Driver of the Year, Moeller received keys to a Cummins-powered Ram truck and a plaque.
Two other truck drivers received honorable mentions in the 2011 competition: James Coles, who drives for MacKinnon Transport Inc., of Guelph, Ontario; and Ronald Round, who drives for Pottle’s Transportation Inc., of Bangor, Maine. Coles has driven more than 1.5 million accident-free miles over a 32-year career, while Round has driven 1.3 million accident-free miles over a 21-year career.
