IRVING, Texas — National Carriers named Clifford Doran and Ali Abdul as drivers of the month for August and September, respectively.
Both of these company drivers received a $1,000 bonus and will join this year’s other drivers of the month in the running for Driver of the Year and the $10,000 prize.
Doran gives credit to others for his honor.
“My driver manager, Barbara Armstrong, and I hit it off right away. She is a good driver manager and a beautiful person,” he said. “NCI has met my expectations as a driver, and I enjoy that they are family oriented. I appreciate the open-door policy here. No one will shoo you away, but everyone will take time to answer your questions. I was already aware of the NCI reputation in the freight business, so I knew this was where I wanted to be.”
September Driver of the Month Abdul is a native of Kenya who joined NCI in February 2016.
In a short time, he has proven to be a leader in deliveries, customer service, and safety, company officials said.
In the past 12 months he has driven his truck over 115,000 miles, delivering products throughout the lower 48 states. Observing his excellent work on a daily basis, Ali’s dispatcher, Logan Tenopir, nominated him for the award.
“Both Clifford and Ali excel at their profession,” said National Carriers spokesperson Ed Kentner. “National Carriers cannot stress enough how pleased we are to have these two men representing our transportation firm. Customers want their freight to be picked up and delivered on time. While in-route, they expect their cargo to be secured and monitored closely. These two “Elite” drivers exceed these expectations each and every trip.”
