Today we celebrate the arrival of a new year. Events like this are often a cause for reflection of the previous season and hopeful anticipation of the next. 2015 was a wonderful year for FirstFleet in many ways. We welcomed many new members to our team and grew the footprint of the organization into new horizons thanks to the hard work and dedication of the entire organization. 

You should be proud of the work you have invested and the company we are building together. Our shipping partners are a critical part of our nation's economy and you have served them well by providing consistent and professional service. Thank you for the integrity you have in your daily tasks.

We are excited to announce that we are introducing a quicker and more efficient delivery of your W-2 information in January 2016.  Employees will be able to access their W-2 on-line through the FirstFleet portal.  

This process is very simple and similar to the process everyone uses to access their weekly pay information today. We anticipate the earnings information will be released for you early in January. When the forms are released a detailed set of instructions on how to access this this information will be shared.

A few years ago, Melvin realized that he needed to take some steps to improve his health while he was on the road.  Driving involves a lot of "sitting time" throughout the week.  Many times, you do not feel like exercising on your time off or at home.  Melvin knew that he needed to take some time to improve himself physically while he was in the truck.  So a few years ago, he began doing a system of simple exercises while inside the truck on breaks.

Today is Thanksgiving - a day set aside to pause and reflect on the blessings of life. I am sure each of us has a different set of blessings that come to mind when reflecting on our lives. For some it may be health, maybe it is children or grandchildren, our shared freedom, perhaps for some it is our work - something we can all be proud of. In the diversity of our team there are no doubt a wide range of blessings bestowed upon us.

Mike Farmer was presented with answering a big question for himself a few years ago when he found out that he was going to be a father to a precious daughter.  He had to make the decision if he was going to be willing to take the necessary steps for himself to ensure that he was going to be active and around for his wife and young daughter.  Once he made the decision to make some changes, Mike found out that small changes can have a huge impact on your health.

These interactions have helped us greatly in this process and we are grateful for the feedback you have provided.

Brian Imhoff spends hours upon hours each week managing the fleet based in Ames, Iowa. He has worked in this role since September 2004. Brian is our featured Wellness Hero this week due to some recent changes he made in his lifestyle and nutrition after the Biometric testing at his location in 2014.

As Brian explains in the attached video, he was not satisfied with some of his results/markers from the test, and he realized it was time to make some changes.
