deBoer News Briefs....
In May 2008 deBoer Transportation, Inc. installed a computer program called Expert Fuel, which will help minimize company fuel costs by making fuel stop recommendations based on current pricing for each load a driver is assigned. With the addition of this feature, drivers are no longer required to plan their fuel stops, as the program does it for them.
deBoer is proud to have received the following Service Awards from our Customers:
2011 received Rheem Manufacturing's "5 Year Dedicated Service" Award

Construction of the driver lounge/bunkhouse in Sherry is complete. The facility has rooms for sleeping, a larger lounge area, showers and offices for Roadrepair and Maintenance. Wi Fi has also been installed for use by drivers who have laptops. Drivers are welcome to make themselves at home when spending downtime at the terminal.
Bryant Ainsworth has been driving for the deBoer Transportation, Inc. since 7/9/04. Bryant was handed the keys to a brand new 2005 Harley Davidson Sportster. deBoer ran a contest among the drivers to help recruit drivers. Bryant recruited 5 full time drivers to deBoer during the contest period. Bryant says that deBoer is a great company to work for and has also recruited his cousin and his room-mate to deBoer.
Bryant called repeatedly during the contest period to see if was winning. He had a big smile on his face and it was a rewarding feeling to present it to him. We hope he enjoys it and rides it safely.
