On February 15th, Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics hosted its 17th Annual IC Conference at the Omni Dallas Park West Hotel. The conference is held each year to bring Daryl Flood’s 65+ truck drivers together from all over the country to learn about important changes in the Transportation industry.
This year, we welcomed several guest speakers from Mayflower’s corporate office in St Louis, Missouri. President and COO of UniGroup, Rich McClure, presented drivers with the 2013 President’s Quality Award for their commitment to providing quality service. Jim Rockwell of UniGroup Operations discussed the importance of new mobile technologies in the moving business. He gave drivers an inside look at FastTrack, a mobile application for household goods inventory tracking and reporting. UniGroup Safety Manager Mike Kratzer discussed new safety regulations set forth by the US Department of Transportation (DOT). At Daryl Flood, each driver must adhere to these regulations, maintaining high scores in safe driving and vehicle maintenance, while serving customers on the road.
The conference concluded with a special awards ceremony to recognize drivers that go above and beyond the call of duty. Driver Marty Brown was awarded the 2013 Safety Performance Award. The 2013 Driver of the Year Awards were awarded to the following drivers based upon their outstanding performance:
Troy Box: Long-Haul Driver of the Year
