PGT Trucking - Supporting Owner-Operators through New Initiatives

October 2022

PGT Trucking, Inc., a multi-service transportation firm offering flatbed, dedicated, international and specialized services, announces improvements to their Owner-Operator program, furthering their support of independent truckers with the addition of a new management position and a monthly recognition campaign to ensure the success of its Owner-Operators.

The trucking industry is competitive, and PGT knows that truck drivers have options. That is why PGT has not waivered on their solid history of offering Owner-Operators competitive rates with access to a rich and consistent freight base, where drivers can control their schedule and earnings potential.

PGT’s Owner-Operator Advocate, Donavon Raab, is the main liaison between Owner-Operators and PGT support staff, streamlining communication and processes, so that Owner-Operators can keep their focus on the road. The Owner-Operator Advocate helps independent contractors take advantage of PGT’s resources, utilize their extensive maintenance network, direct customer freight options, and ensuring they meet their weekly financial goals.

“PGT’s Owner-Operators are seeing the benefits of a dedicated advocate,” stated Paul Martin, PGT Trucking’s Chief Innovation Officer. “Since establishing this role, we’ve seen an increase in driver revenue, utilization, and satisfaction for our Owner-Operators. We want to see our drivers succeed and do well.”

In addition, PGT is recognizing top performers at the company with their Owner-Operator of the Month Award Program. To qualify, Owner-Operators must exemplify Proud Professional characteristics, show consistency in freight delivery, practice safe driving with above average camera scores and achieve top revenue goals. The Owner-Operator of the Month receives a merchandise/prize package and company-wide acknowledgement.

Professional driver Kent Miller was named as the inaugural PGT Owner-Operator of the Month for July 2022. Kent has driven with PGT for seven years, and he is recognized as a member of PGT’s Safe Driver fleet. Kent’s hard work, dedication and professionalism ensure that PGT’s customers receive their products safely and on-time, and Kent’s truck and trailer are always in pristine condition.

Future Owner-Operators of the Month will be announced on PGT’s social media.
