Freightliner Team Run Smart pros Citizen Driver award winners

Freightliner Team Run Smart pros named Citizen Driver award winners

Freightliner Trucks announced that Team Run Smart pros Henry Albert and Linda and Bob Caffee were recognized with 2014 Citizen Driver awards from TravelCenters of America (TA).

The Citizen Driver award recognizes professional drivers who demonstrate good citizenship, safety, community involvement and leadership. In honor of this recognition, the drivers selected their favorite TA or Petro Stopping Center to be renamed after them.

Statesville, N.C.-based Henry Albert, owner of Albert Transport Inc. and driver of a Freightliner Cascadia Evolution equipped with a Detroit DD15 engine, selected the TA in Laredo, Texas as his favorite location. Renamed the “Henry Albert Laredo Travel Center,” Albert noted winning the Citizen Driver award is a humbling experience.

Bob and Linda Caffee—who drive a Freightliner Cascadia with a Detroit DD13 engine—are independent contractors leased to FedEx Custom Critical. The Silex, Mo.-based couple selected the Petro N. Las Vegas to be renamed the “Linda and Bob Caffee North Las Vegas Stopping Center.”
