TCA’s weight-loss contest week 7: Individual driver leaders

| April 09, 2012

After we posted last week on the week 6 results of the Truckload Carriers Association’s Weight-Loss Showdown competition among carriers and their drivers and staff members, the organization released the week 7 results, including not only cumulative carrier percentages (Prime Inc. remains the weight-loss leader) but results among individuals.

Drumroll please….

Hirschbach Motor Lines driver Carl Bailey is the individual leader with a whopping 23 percent-plus reduction in weight, nearly a quarter of his beginning weight lost! The next closest competitor is Prime back-office staffer Eric Allie, with just more than an 18 percent reduction. Take a look at the graphic below for the full top ten. To keep on top of results going forward, check out the TCA central contest page here.
