Wright Transportation invests $3.5 million in safe drivers

New blue trucks are hitting the road now.

Wright Transportation has added to its fleet, recognizing safe drivers with $3.5 million investment.

Wright Transportation Inc. is proud to announce the addition of 23 new trucks to their fleet to recognize excellence in safety among their drivers.

The new blue T680 Kenworth Next Generation trucks will stand out from the fleet of white trucks and will be given to “Million Mile Drivers” — those drivers who have logged a million safe miles or more on the road. In order to be a Million Mile Driver, a driver must be committed to safety on the road and be accident free for all million miles.

These new trucks were certified with the EPA SmartWay designation, which is only provided to those trucks with the most aerodynamic features to reduce carbon emissions. Along with greater safety features, these trucks have superior technology and features than standard over-the-road trucks.

Daniel Wright, president of Wright Transportation, says, “When blue trucks show up at the terminal or customers, we want everyone to know that these drivers have gone the extra mile and are driving some of the safest and cleanest trucks on the road. There is a lot of hard work that goes into becoming a Million Mile Driver and these drivers need to be recognized with one of the nicest trucks on the road.”

The new fleet of trucks represents a $3.5 million investment in clean and safe equipment, bringing the total number of Wright trucks to 205. The addition of the trucks will allow Wright to continue to bring jobs to the community. Anyone interested in applying can fill out an online application.
