At D&D Transportation, we offer amenities drivers don’t always consider or prioritize during their job search. But what may seem to be minor company perks during the application process are much more. In fact, they make all the difference when it comes to having an enjoyable trucking career.
This is one of the many reasons we work hard to stay ahead of the game in terms of technological advances in the trucking industry: the safety and well-being of our drivers is at stake. We believe trucking companies bear a tremendous responsibility to equip drivers with state-of-the-art technology that empowers and protects them. Such advanced equipment is invaluable on the roads, especially in unfavorable driving conditions.
Here are a few ways we employ the use of technology to benefit our drivers.
At D&D, we offer the aforementioned equipment and technology, but not at a loss to environmental performance. We were one of only 39 truck carriers in the U.S. to be awarded the 2015 EPA SmartWay® Excellence Award.
We believe a well-rounded approach to trucking benefits not just our drivers and our economy, but the environment as well. In an industry that often struggles to keep up with technology, our philosophy is that everybody wins when we provide our drivers with technology that helps them do their jobs better.
