The National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC) represents over 14,000 trucking companies in the United States and Canada that employ over 156,000 drivers collectively. Each year the association sponsors a driver of the year program to recognize the very best drivers within their group. Among the drivers selected to NASTC’s 2021 Driver of the Year Team was Jack Pate who drives for Daggett Truck Line of Frazee.
“As a recipient of his prestigious award, Jack Pate joins a very elite group that represent the very best of our 156,000 drivers,” said Buster Anderson, Executive Vice President of NASTC.
“Daggett Truck Line is very proud of their drivers and should be very proud of themselves as well,” Anderson said. “It says a lot about a company when they can attract and keep employees of this caliber.”
Pate has driven for Daggett Truck Line for over 24 years and has accumulated over 3,592,124 accident-free miles.
