Youngest Driver of the Month in Company History

By: National Carriers

National Carriers, Inc. has named Jose Contreras as Driver of the Month for November 2015. He was raised and educated in Garden City, KS, where he continues to live.  Contreras began driving for National Carriers at the age of twenty-three. After leaving for a brief period he returned in May of 2011. At thirty-one years of age, he is the youngest person in the 47 years history of National Carriers to be recognized as driver of the month. Contreras owns and operates his truck and is leased to the NCI livestock division.

“My dad is a truck driver. My brothers and my uncles are truck drivers too. I like what I do, I like working with cattle and my dispatchers are great people,” Contreras shared.

National Carriers Livestock Division Director, Jason Greer stated, “Jose Contreras is a fine example of the quality of drivers in his generation. He is a respectable, hard-working, man who is dedicated to doing his job to the best of his ability. The future of NCI and the transportation industry as a whole will be in good hands with drivers like Jose leading the way.”

Each Driver of the Month is a finalist for NCI Driver of the Year 2015. Each monthly winner receives a $500 bonus and Driver of the Year is awarded a $5000 prize.
