  • Owner Operator of the Year Nominees

     It is with great pleasure that Contrans Flatbed Group had the opportunity to nominate 3 of our owner operators for “Owner Operator of the Year”.  Truck News has a yearly contest where companies nominate their professional owner operators who have a safe driving record, high level of industry involvement, heroism or going “green” initiatives.  This year we nominated William Randall from our tandem group for safe driving record and dependability.  James Mosher from our multi group was nominated for his safe driving record and reliability.  Wayne Roberts from our steel division was nominated for his industry involvement and promotion of safety.  We are very proud to have these gentlemen in our company and appreciate their hard work every day!
