Irving,TX-  Owner Operators Allen and Sandy Smithhave been named Driver of the Year at National Carriers, Inc. Joining the firmin 1987, the Smith team is quickly approaching their 30thanniversary with the “Elite” Fleet. Delivering over 4000 loads during theteam’s tenure, they have driven over five million miles without a reportableaccident. The award presentation came at the conclusion of the annual NCIDriver of the Year banquet. Among their many gifts was a check for $5,000.


“Not many drivers stay with the same company for 30years, but, on the other hand, not many companies stay in business that longeither. National has been here nearly 50 years. When I interviewed to lease mytruck on, I told them I wanted to work for a company that could keep me busyand get me home to West Virginia. National Carriers has done both,” remarkedAllen.

They have set a high standard for those who follow in their footsteps.Thank you for all you do. It’s my privilege to work alongside you,” he said.
