Clayton, Ala. -- When Hullon Tyus was in the National Guard, he saw trucks from Boyd Bros. Transportation on the road all the time and noted how new the equipment always seemed. He finally decided to stop in one day and ask for an application, since the company had a terminal near his home. Now, nearly 18 years later, Tyus has accomplished something few drivers ever do; he just reached 2 million safe miles driving for Boyd Bros.
"Reaching 2 million miles tells me that a lot of people know that I can do what I need to do and be professional about it," says Tyus. "That's a lot of miles and loads to be accident free, since an accident can really happen at any time."
This achievement is something that requires drivers to have a record free of accidents or incidents and takes them years of hard work, commitment and a solid relationship with their company. For Tyus, this milestone also means that he is a part of an elite group of drivers who are called to set an example to their colleagues who are working towards their first or second million safe miles.
"I spent 12 years in the military and I really think that this helped me with staying grounded and not overreacting to things on the road," says Tyus. "I think drivers need to remember not to take anything for granted. Take your time and think about safety. Always put yourself not only behind the wheel, but also in front of your truck."
Tyus has always appreciated the fact that Boyd Bros. is a family-oriented company that treats its drivers right. His job as a professional driver allows him to spend nearly every weekend with his wife, five daughters and grandchildren at his home in Cusseta, Ga.
"Boyd is just what they say they are. They take care of their drivers, get you anything need and put us first," Tyus explains. "They've really helped me focus on what's important and spend that quality time with the people I love most."
Boyd Bros. driver benefits include medical and life insurance plans, a referral bonus program and the opportunity to have 24-hours of home time every weekend in 80% of its hiring areas. The company also offers late-model equipment, substantial freight, load matching and high standards for safety and service, ensuring productivity and success.
