Navajo’s Powerful Positives of 2018
We want to share the amazing year that Navajo Express had!
It’s safe to say that Navajo had a big year! From awards received, our Atlanta terminal opening, new members joining the team and the Navajo professional drivers putting in millions of safe miles. Take a look at the articles, blogs and photos that sum up our remarkable journey over the last 365 days.
Our team members’ hard work and innovative thinking was not lacking this year. This shows through the highly-acclaimed awards we were proud to be honored with.
Two of our female managers traveled to Dallas to accept the Women in Trucking award for “Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation”.
Navajo’s passion for producing inventive ways to enhance fuel efficiency was once again recognized with the 2018 SmartWay Excellence Award.
Inbound Logistics considered Navajo a Top 100 Trucker in their September edition.
And last, but far from least, two of our professional drives, Bruce Brown and Charley Hamilton, were honored with the Colorado Motor Carriers Association's Driver of the Month award.
It’s important to Navajo that we stay connected to the industry in order to stay ahead of trends, as well as share some of our ideas to trucking and transportation leaders. Check out a few articles we were eager to help with and events we participated in.
