Ruan's professional drivers are the best of the best. They're safety conscious. Courteous. Provide great customer service. We are proud of our fleet of 4,600 drivers, and we formally recognize them annually with our Driver of the Year program. Each spring, our on-site managers nominate their highest performing drivers as Driver of the Year finalists. Then, our vice presidents of operations narrow the field of 184 finalists to 15 Winners' Circle honorees representing our various business units. The Winners' Circle will be celebrated in our headquarters city of Des Moines, IA, this July at our Driver and Operation of the Year awards ceremony. There, one driver will be named our 2018 Driver of the Year and receive $5,000, a trophy, and the coveted title.
Congratulations to our 2018 Driver of the Year finalists! While only some can be recognized in this program, they all deserve it.
