Montgomery Transport Announces Inaugural Driver Advisory Board
Birmingham, Ala. – Montgomery Transport announced their inaugural MT Driver Advisory Board. Montgomery Transport takes pride on an outstanding culture between its staff and nearly 450 driving professionals and wanted to provide drivers with an effective platform to give influence on company decisions and create ambassadors for company changes, updates and a voice for driver concerns.
The MT Driver Advisory Board is comprised of a diverse group of Montgomery professional drivers with varying experience levels, tenure, age and domicile. These honorary drivers went through a qualification process including nomination from their driver manager and an interview. The board members will serve a one-year term and participate in multiple meetings per year.
On June 21st, the selected drivers attended their second meeting in Birmingham, AL where drivers and management engaged in conversation and presentation topics including safety, respect, equipment, continuous improvement strategies, team work and communication. The advisory board will be instrumental in helping Montgomery Transport collaborate, take action and communicate effectively on driver aggregates from their most important asset, those behind the wheel.
“I have always said that our professional drivers are the backbone of our business. I am honored and excited to roll out this new Driver Advisory initiative and I am confident it will allow us to continue to expand in all facets of how we improve our drivers’ quality of life,” said Rollins Montgomery, CEO of Montgomery Transport. “Communication is one of the largest keys to success in any business and I look forward to the additional communication through the voices of our Driver Advisory Board, which will help us to maintain our position as a leader in the marketplace.”
