March has been busy, but a memorable month for everyone at J&M. As we ramp up for the summertime, we took some time to acknowledge a group of great drivers, show some appreciation to our employees and give back to those in need.
Million Mile Awards
Friday, February 25th and March 4th, J&M held their 2019 – 2020 Alabama and Georgia Million Mile award dinners. These dinners were about honoring the career accomplishments J&M drivers who reached a million, or over a million safe miles. These drivers have been accident and violation-free for almost a decade. These drivers set the standard for the next generation of truck drivers, representing what it means to be a professional truck driver. J&M is proud to have safe, hardworking, and diligent drivers like these!
March 16, the trucking industry’s charitable arm – the Trucking Cares Foundation – announced it was donating more than $40,000 to a trio of organizations involved in Ukrainian humanitarian relief efforts. “The Trucking Cares Foundation was established to help mobilize the trucking industry in response to disasters – natural and manmade – so providing relief and comfort to Ukrainians suffering as a result of this war is something we are called to do,” said American Trucking Associations Chairman Harold Sumerford Jr., CEO of J&M Tank Lines. We are proud to contribute our part in making a difference!
Employee Appreciation Day
Employee Appreciation Day was March 4th this year. A couple of our locations took the opportunity to celebrate with Chick-fil-A biscuits or a terminal cookout. After two years of COVID restrictions, we were happy to gather together. J&M appreciates every single employee for all their hard work and dedication!
We are now looking forward to the busy season summer brings!
