Richard Taylor

Driver of the Month - Over The Road

CalArk is pleased to present that we are now recognizing a Driver of the Month beginning with July 2019. Criteria considered when choosing a Driver of the Month includes miles, MPG, on-time-delivery, safety record, attitude, professionalism, and overall performance. Recipients of the Driver of the Month Award will be presented with a plaque, CalArk button up shirts that say “Driver of the Month”, and other perks throughout the year including being automatically placed in the running for Driver of the Year.

CalArk’s very first Driver of the Month is Richard Taylor. Richard is on Ronnie Moore’s board and is from Trenton, NC. He is a rehire who originally started with us in September of 2014. Becky Melton and Ronnie Moore both agree Richard is a great guy and is always willing to help out. He is also one of our driver trainers. If you see Richard around, please congratulate him on a job well done!

A World-Class Safety Program

“Choosing to be a professional driver means choosing to be a safe, defensive driver not only for yourself but for the motoring public around you.”
- Leslie Stout, CDS, Director of Safety, CalArk International

That is why we put great emphasis on safe and defensive driving training here at CalArk. We have a company-wide, top-down understanding of and appreciation for the importance of safety and the impact it has on our company, on our industry, and on the motoring public.

Accident costs go beyond damaged equipment. Accidents affect company reliability and reputation, employee morale, insurance costs, productivity, recruiting, and retention efforts. We recognize the value of being committed to a world-class safety program, and we strive every day to be safer than the day before and to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.
