We’re proud of our team and we’d like to take this opportunity to showcase some of the great Mullen employees who contribute to the on going growth and success of this company!
Congratulations to Richard Anderson as he was chosen as Driver of the Month for October! Rick re-joined Mullen Trucking in 2017 as a Company Driver; he had spent some years away from the long haul life to be closer to his family. His choice to return to Mullen Trucking has been beneficial for dispatch, the office and anyone who knows him. Rick is willing to travel anywhere and recently hauled freight up to Wabash, Newfoundland where he endured terrible roads and real winter conditions. It’s a long way up and a long way back, Rick persevered and successfully completed the trip. He is agreeable, likes to joke around, very much enjoys sharing his experiences, but most of all, is a true asset to Mullen Trucking. Congratulations Richard! (photo to come)
