David Schwandt: A Two Million Mile Master

By: Malone Powered by CRST

Birmingham AlabamaFor many professional truck drivers reaching the million mile mark is
the greatest achievement in their truck driving career.  For CRST Malone Owner Operator David
Schwandt however that point was reached a long time ago.  Driving for Malone since 1982 Schwandt has amazingly
passed the two million mile mark receiving both the Million Miler and Two
Million Miler award a feat not many drivers can attain. 


A truly
experienced driver Schwandt began his career 40 years ago in 1966 after
leaving the army.  With a wife to support
and a home to provide he realized that truck driving was a wise path to pursue.  After working for several years with another
company he joined CRST Malone upon hearing what they had to offer.  ?I never considered anyone else after I found
out about Malone? claims Schwandt.  ?I
love the independence.  The freedom of
getting to go where I want when I want along with the great pay rates and the
frequent hometime make this company the best to work for.?

Schwandt recently had the pleasure of delivering the
scoreboard to the new Busch Stadium where the St. Louis Cardinals play.  A ?major leaguer? in the trucking industry
the task was fitting for Scwandt now reaching the two million mile mark without
any accidents.

has now been an Owner Operator with CRST Malone for almost a quarter of a
century and has no desire to go anywhere else. 
?I am treated like a professional here? states Schwandt.  ?They work around any issues I have and if I
need help they are always there to lend a helping hand.?  Schwandt enjoys owning his own truck.  Not only is he proud of the truck he drives
but he is equally proud of the work he does for Malone. 


CRST Malone is grateful for the valuable business partner they have in David
Schwandt.  Aside from the highly regarded
accomplishment of becoming a Two Million Miler he also received recognition as
Owner Operator of the month last year and was named Owner Operator of the Year
in 1993.
?Mr. Schwandt represents the kind of professional that all
drivers aspire to be? says Sherry Bass Vice President of Capacity
Development.  ?He is the best of the best.
It really says a lot about CRST Malone that a guy like this chooses to partner
with us.?


covers a lot of ground while he?s out on the road and he stays a busy
man.   Likewise when he gets home he is
busy as well.  Spending time with his
wife Carolyn two grown sons Les and Russell and three grandchildren
Samantha Melissa and Cassidy gives Schwandt a lot to look forward to when he
gets home.  In fact playing with his
grandchildren is one of his favorite pastimes. 
Family is extremely important to Schwandt as it is to CRST Malone.  Aside from the quality time he spends with
his family Schwandt also enjoys working on cars and selling items on eBay when
he has a chance.


As far
as loyal dedicated employees go David Schwandt is at the top of CRST Malone?s
list.  This two million mile Owner
Operator is truly a role model for less experienced and well-established Malone
drivers alike.  Schwandt is thankful for
his job at Malone and constantly refers the company to potential truck drivers
all around.  ?I will always refer people
to [Malone]? he claims.  ?I am proud of
my job and want others to see that this is a great company to work for.?
