CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, August 5, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Coming out of the trucking industry's most turbulent year, Don Hummer Trucking persevered and has been named the Best Trucking Company in 2021 by Corridor Business Journal (CBJ).
Hummer, headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has offered tailored and versatile trucking services for companies for over 60 years. But in 2020, with a pandemic gripping the globe and shaking the trucking industry, the company faced one obstacle after another.
"2020 presented a number of unique challenges that most of us had never experienced before," President Chris Hummer said. "Our systems were operational, and our people remained committed to getting the job done. It was particularly evident in the early weeks of the pandemic just how critical trucking is to the quality of life that we enjoy."
Hummer drivers continued to deliver freight; office staff kept service interruptions at a minimum while terminal staff maintained the equipment. "The people" set Hummer Trucking apart from other companies, according to Chris Hummer.
The company's anchoring philosophy and tagline — "Delivering Value" — steers their work on every level. This, company executives say, is the reason Hummer is an industry leader.
Hummer has made work-life balance a priority for its drivers, uniquely offering them scheduled positions and consistent pay. And when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Hummer quickly and efficiently went remote.
"This gave us an advantage to support drivers as the pandemic worsened and the freight demand increased across the country," Chris Hummer said.
Hummer offers dry van and temperature-controlled truckload services and value-added truckload services in 48 states. In addition to its headquarters in Cedar Rapids, the company has facilities in Homestead, Iowa, and Gretna, Nebraska.
In 2021, with the industry still reeling, Don Hummer Trucking is delivering value when it matters most.
The industry leader is currently looking for drivers to fill solo and team dedicated positions. In some markets throughout the country, the positions offer weekly pay and home time. Learn more at driveforhummer.com.
