We’re right in the middle of Open Enrollment and it’s moving by quickly! Now is definitely the time to review your current benefits and decide if they still meet your needs and the needs of your family. If you do not wish to make any changes to your current elections you do not have to do anything, your elections will simply carry over into 2018. However, you do have to elect new Flex Spending contributions if you would like to participate in a Flex Spending account in 2018.

A time to reflect on and appreciate those men and women, who 24 hours a day are on the road. From gasoline, to medicine, to groceries, electronics and beyond, these are the professionals behind the scenes that make it happen day in and day out.

Driver appreciation week is here, and from the time I have started with FirstFleet, Inc. I have not only acquired a new outlook, but gained great deal of appreciation towards the tough jobs you as drivers do daily.

I have worked in other career fields where trucks were received, my father and grandfather were truck drivers, with that I had basic knowledge of what a truck driver did day to day. Did I fully understand? No.

I’ve come to value and understand how many days a truck driver is gone, Monday - Friday, Holiday’s, and what is a weekend? How many first days of school, birthdays, super bowls, and special events were missed? Out on the road, driving the economy, putting food on shelves and the clothes that we wear into the stores we enjoy most every day.

It may be a coincidence that this week is designated by our industry as National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, but by the time this week is over, our country will owe a greater debt of appreciation to the men and women who drive a truck for a living than at any time in recent memory.

The images from Houston TX of the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey and the potential of even more destruction in Florida from Hurricane Irma are both heartbreaking – in terms of the loss of life and massive destruction of property, and heartwarming – in the heroic efforts of ordinary people to help their neighbors, friend and stranger alike, to escape the flooding and bring them, their children, pets, etc. to safety.

By now you have seen the images of the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the devastation it left in its path. There is untold loss of property and that doesn't even compare to the loss of life that many are grieving today. Our hearts and prayers go out to those impacted by this horrific event.

In spite of the harsh realities we continue to hear stories of hope and unity from the communities impacted. You have seen individuals rescuing people they don't know, stores opening their doors for shelter and even large scale fund raising events like this one by J.J. Watt which is currently at $28 million dollars and counting

On Monday August 21, 2017 a Total Solar Eclipse will be visible in the continental United States. The moon will completely cover the sun for anywhere up to 3 minutes in a band across the country. This band is roughly 65 miles wide, and extends from Oregon to South Carolina. We want our drivers to watch their speed and distance as normal, but be prepared for additional interstate congestion.

As part of our continuing efforts to communicate well with our driver community we are excited to announce the release of a new version of our mobile app. Stats on the FirstFleet Mobile App show us that a great number of our drivers are regularly using the app to help plan and confirm their trips, review their pay, find fuel stops and much more.

The mobile app is designed to allow our driver community to quickly locate information pertaining to their daily tasks and to stay connected through tools like load planning, fuel economy, payroll history, training and more. If you not presently using the mobile app I would encourage you to visit the app market for your phone and give it a test drive today.
