“We do a lot internally to help our technicians understand that they are a very important spoke in the wheel of our company.” -Jim Boyd, manager of fleet technical services, Southeastern Freight Lines
I interviewed Jim Boyd yesterday for a story you‘ll see in this space pretty soon here. But his quote above really struck me as it summed up (to my mind, anyway) how important it truly is to make sure heavy-duty truck technicians - like drivers - understand how important their job is within the trucking world of today.
That‘s the sort of the reasoning behind the slideshow below - to shine the light on a job that gets overlooked, if not just completely taken for granted, in the daily hustle and bustle of the freight word. Enjoy!
