Knight Opens New Service Center in Atlanta
If there's one thing that makes Knight Transportation stand out as one of the most innovative companies in the trucking industry, it's their addition of full-service centers along their routes. These facilities offer drivers not only the chance to fuel up and get their truck services, but they also present the option to take a quick shower, catch up on laundry, and relax in a lounge stocked with vending machines. Truly making Knight 'Your Hometown National Carrier' while on the road.
Benjee Elder, service center manager for the new Atlanta location is very pleased with what is being offered to his drivers. He projects that there will be a lot of trucks pulling in during the weeks to come and knows that the current building will be more welcoming to drivers familiar with the previous site. It's good news like this that serves as a constant reminder to Benjee of why he's happy to be with the company. "The little successes are most rewarding; good little things pile up."
The drivers are pretty excited about it as well. Having a safe place to relax is one of the most important advantages to Knight driver Jeff Burden. It's just nice to not have to worry about sleep and showering." His fellow driver Anttwan Lovett feels the same way."It's a great way to save money and still be safe on the road." Whether a driver coming through Atlanta needs food, fuel, sleep or a shower, they can rest easy knowing that it's just a few minutes off the interstate.
