“When I found out we’d won I was shocked because our store just opened on May 1, 2020,” said Kim Jackson, general manager of Bert’s Travel Plaza in Wellsville, Kansas. “But we’ve worked so hard to make it a great place. Being family owned, especially having owners that also operate a trucking company, really helps. They put all their trucker knowledge into our facility. The owner really wanted a place for drivers so it was built for the drivers. There’s lots of concrete, bigger spots for driver comfort and a security guard at night to help drivers.  We also have  free parking, a wash bay, and we have a 24-hour cleaning crew for clean showers and restrooms. I am very thankful for a great staff that also cares about  the drivers. At the end of the day, I’m very proud to show my kids that hard work really pays off.”

For its annual Best Truck Stops award, Trucker Path uses in-app ratings, reviews and driver feedback to determine the top 20 chain and independent truck stops. The Top 5 lists are then created through voting on those locations by Trucker Path app users. Each Best Truck Stops facility receives a window decal honoring the location.

Direct labor vs. indirect labor: what do these terms mean? And how much of each is happening in your shop?When this subject comes up, general comments always end up saying that the techs must be hanging around doing nothing. Most who read the data only read the direct data and not the indirect data breakdown. And most shops do not pay attention to the indirect data, so therefore it is a good, appropriate question.
