earn him a Harley
Aug 7, 2012 10:14 AM
C R England Inc, a Salt Lake City UT-based global transportation provider, has awarded a Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom motorcycle to Stacy Scott, one of its top drivers, for showing improvement in miles per gallon (mpg) average and average idle percentage for the second quarter 2012.
Scott drives for Daylight Transport in the Dedicated Division and travels from Los Angeles CA to Indianapolis IN every week. During the quarter, he achieved an average of 7.43 mpg and a 12.8% idle, well above his peers in the division. Scott says his success comes from following what he has been taught at C R England, including progressive shifting and keeping the truck in top gear as much as possible. He watches his idling and looks for ways to reduce it. An employee of C R England since September 2010, he lives in Antelope CA.
Other finalists included Terrance Grant, National Division company driver; and Ben Patterson, Regional Division company driver.
The promotion ran from April 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012. Drivers must have met these requirements in the second quarter 2012: Availability at 75% or higher, an average mpg of 7.4, an idle of less than 15%, and no chargeable late loads. Competition included drivers that had a start date no later than April 1, 2012.
C R England’s partners in the promotion are Golden Spike Harley-Davidson, Warner Truck Center, Horizon Truck and Leasing, Loves Travel Stops, and Pilot Flying J.
Golden Spike Harley-Davidson in Ogden UT is named after the historic event at Promontory Point in which the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroad companies met to form the first transcontinental railroad May 10, 1869, commemorated with the driving of a golden spike connecting the two railroads.
Founded in 1920, C R England is one of North America’s largest transportation companies and the world’s largest temperature-controlled carrier. Its services include national, Mexico, and regional truckload service in addition to dedicated and intermodal services.
