US Truck Drivers amazing freighting record

Two million accident free miles
Shipping News Feature

US - Steve Ruesken, a Con-way Freight driver from Illinois has now achieved an amazing milestone.

Not only has he completed over 2 million miles in his 22 year career with the company, he has managed to do so without an accident!

Steve is to be honoured in a special ceremony at his home depot of Salem on the 26th August.

Whilst Steve’s record may seem exceptional to British truckers he is in fact the 90th Con-way driver to exceed the two million mile mark, illustrating the enormous distances US freight drivers manage.

Con-way carry LCL and LTL cargoes internally and across into Canada and Mexico from over 365 centres around the US and distribute import cargo into the US on behalf of TNT.
