RoadOne Driver Appreciation Event Fosters Driver Community Entrepreneurship and Strengthens RoadOne's Driver Network

$15,000 Grand Prize Announced -- 1 Full Year of Truck Payments

RANDOLPH, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, a leading single source intermodal, distribution, and logistics services company, announces today that Idilio Tavares is the winner of its $15,000 grand prize, one full year of truck payments. During National Driver Appreciation Week, September 15-19, RoadOne held a two day Driver Appreciation Open House at its headquarters in Randolph, Massachusetts. The aim of this event was to show gratitude to its drivers for their hard work and dedication, expand RoadOne's driver team and promote owner-operator incentive programs to help drivers start their own business.

RoadOne guarantees tractor financing for its drivers with 3rd party leasing company, ENG Financial Leasing, who provides financial support. Drivers are not required to have credit or a down payment. In addition, Massport attended the Open House to help drivers apply for a $25,000 Green Truck Grant which is directly applied to their vehicle purchase. 

The Open House was immensely successful for attracting drivers from the northeast. The event resulted in 13 new RoadOne owner-operator drivers signing up. Through an ongoing commitment to driver incentive programs, RoadOne will expand its driver network to meet intermodal trucking demand. Additional driver recruitment events will be held throughout the U.S. in the coming year.

"Today, it's critically important to provide the support necessary to recruit and retain intermodal drivers. RoadOne strongly believes in assisting owner-operators in their goal of establishing sole proprietorship businesses," said David McLaughlin, RoadOne's COO.

RoadOne IntermodaLogistics' 2-day Open House welcomed drivers with a BBQ lunch and an array prizes including: Gas grills, truck tires, $100 gift card, air hoses and the grand prize of 1 year of free truck payments.
