Three of our dedicated Trans-Phos drivers were recently recognized by the Florida Trucking Association and the Florida Highway Patrol for driving 1 million safe miles in the state of Florida. Captain B. Ezra Folsom of the Florida Highway Patrol presented letters of recognition to Trans-Phos drivers, Michael Smith, Jerry Humphrey and Terry Young.

During the ceremony, Cpt. Folsom read a personalized letter from Chief Troy Thompson, Florida Highway Patrol: Office of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement in which he addressed the three drivers specifically.

“It is my understanding that you have recently achieved one million accident free miles of commercial motor vehicle driving throughout your career,” wrote Chief Thompson.  “This is truly an amazing accomplishment especially considering that many of these miles were recorded on some of the busiest and congested roadways in America.  I am proud to award you this certificate on behalf of the Florida Highway Patrol and all the citizens of Florida. I would like to thank you for your professionalism and commitment to safety.”

The ceremony took place at a Trans-Phos’ Company BBQ in honor of Driver Appreciation Week. More than 100 drivers and employees received a BBQ meal cooked by Neil Whitney, COO and served by Chris Whitney, CEO alongside all Trans-Phos leadership team members in appreciation for our drivers.
