Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays 2020

As we approach Christmas and the holiday season, we would like to take this moment to say thank you to our employees.  We have endured several losses this year of operations personnel, drivers, our founding father, and most importantly family members.  We want to keep these families in our thoughts and prayers as we go through these holiday times.  We have endured a global pandemic while at the same time having record loads hauled per week keeping the public supplied with groceries, bread, and paper products.  We were able to transition our entire fleet of 3000 trucks to a new in-cab devices and complete 3 start-ups!  I have never been more proud to work for this company than in this year.  


On our 30th anniversary 4 years ago, many of our employees identified 5 core values that made FirstFleet stand out.  They are: 


  • Safely deliver outstanding service
  • Empower our people to do the right thing
  • Relationships will be built on trust
  • Value, care for, and respect everyone
  • Embrace change as a reality of progress

It has been wonderful to see each of those values lived out during this stressful year. Through all of the struggles that 2020 has brought, these values were tested more than ever. And I witnessed them being lived out in each person I worked with this year. I hope you have seen the same.


We appreciate your hard work and perseverance during these unprecedented times.  You have performed your jobs with no questions asked.  I wish joy and peace to you and your family during this Holiday Season.  


Warmest Wishes,
