2016 was an incredible year at Trans-Phos! Everyone at the company contributed to another year of world-class service and safety. Trans-Phos was named the safest carrier of our size in the state of Florida and we drove approximately 15 MILLION miles! Both of these milestones were no small feat and we applaud all of our employees for their hard work and determination this past year. It truly was an awesome year and everyone on our team deserves recognition for their contribution to our success.
On January 7th, our employees and their families gathered together for the Trans-Phos' 2017 Kickoff BBQ. It was a rainy morning, but the weather couldn't keep us from enjoying the day. We had a delicious spread of homemade BBQ and sides (made with love by our very own Neil Whitney, John Cochran and Rick Uber), a bounce house for the kids, corn hole, snow cones and good ol' fashioned fun. We also hosted a company-wide raffle with prizes such as gift cards, Bluetooth headsets, tablets, TVs and even a Caribbean cruise for two!
During the BBQ, we also recognized the Trans-Phos 2016 Drivers of the Year for their commitment to our company values and their outstanding performance in 2016. In addition, we gave out awards for our "Wheels Rollin' Program." The Wheels Rollin' Program is a peer recognition initiative (launched in 2016) whereby employees can nominate fellow team members for displaying our company values and helping to keep our wheels rollin'.
