Congratulations to Roehl Transport truck driver David Marihugh for reaching the Top 12 in the Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award!

Dave served 25 years in the US Navy, and he joined Roehl in November of 2021. Dave got paid while he got his CDL through Roehl, and he’s now a National Fleet driver in our Dry Van division. Dave also recently completed Roehl’s Trainer Foundations Course so he’s a Certified Driver Trainer, helping new drivers achieve Driver Success!

Dave shared in his essay that he continues “…to exhibit the values the military has imparted in my life: integrity, accountability, reliability, humility and compassion. These values extend throughout my personal and professional life in my interactions with customers and team members. The time in the military taught me about honor, courage and humility and those are characteristics that are part of who I am as a person.”

Roehl’s Van Group President, Don Ingersoll, noted that the values Dave holds dear align with Roehl’s company values. “First, Dave drives the Roehl Way to Protect Others – living our value of Safety. Second, Dave is Driver Driven – he leads the way by trip‐planning, being on‐time and being accountable for his performance. That also helps him Deliver Success to our customers and our teammates. And, Dave goes beyond simply delivering freight; he understands how his professionalism as a driver impacts Roehl Transport, our customers, our teammates, the people he shares the road with and our country. He is a leader!”

Transition Trucking is presented by the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes Program (HOH), Kenworth, and FASTPORT. It's a national competition for America’s top military rookie driver. The winning driver is selected after a year-long competition among veterans, guard members and reservists who have made the successful transition in the trucking industry following military service.

Roehl Transport has repeatedly been recognized as a Military Friendly Employer, and the company has had a driving teammate in the (now) Top 12 every year since 2018. Joseph Campbell won the award as a member of TeamRoehl in 2019.
