Peterbilt Motors Company, along with Decker Truck Line, Inc., celebrated a relationship spanning six decades with the delivery of the transportation company’s 2,500th Peterbilt truck purchased from JX Truck Center.
Decker runs a mix of Peterbilt vehicles, including the Model 579 UltraLoft, for both its refrigerated and flatbed operations. The company also runs Peterbilt’s Model 389 which is awarded to Decker’s most senior professional drivers.
“Decker purchased its first Peterbilt truck more than 50 years ago starting a relationship that has continued to grow stronger through many decades of doing business together,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt’s assistant general manager for sales and marketing. “I am proud of the relationship Peterbilt has with Decker and I congratulate them on a long history of industry leadership.”
The 2,500th truck, a custom 2019 Peterbilt Model 389, will be awarded to Decker’s 2018 grand champion driver of the tear, Steve Alliger. Since joining Decker in 1997, Alliger has accumulated more than 3,000,000 miles of safe driving, and in 2018 alone he made more than 160 deliveries covering more than 150,000 miles.
