Driver of the Year Award
Help us congratulate Sam H., as Montgomery Transport's 2021 Driver of the Year! Sam was April's Driver of the Month and was unanimously chosen based on his performance. He received a perfect five-star P4P score multiple times last year due to his utilization, safety, and MPG. Sam is a top notch driver and we are privileged to have him on our team.
“Sam is the kind of driver every company wants. He works hard and does things the right way. He is always helping us with dropped trailers and makes it a priority to leave trailers in top notch condition for the next driver to hook to. He stays at the top for miles and safety every single month. The passion he has for this industry is something I wish a lot more guys had. He deserves this much overdue honor.'”

How We Select Driver of the Year
MT's Driver of the Year award is designed to recognize and honor our drivers who have demonstrated superior professionalism, excellence in safety, and have dedicated their time and efforts in all around service to Montgomery Transport and our customers. The Driver of the Month is selected from the fleet’s top performers each month. A Driver of the Month committee, consisting of safety and senior management, reviews the list of top performing drivers and puts them to a vote. The driver with the most votes is deemed Driver of the Month. Each month’s driver will become a candidate for Driver of the Year that will be chosen at the beginning of the following year once scores are finalized.
Driver of the Year will be provided a beautiful, custom black tractor for daily company use!
