CDL Meals

Attention all drivers, family and friends of Long Haul! We are incredibly excited to roll out to you a brand new offer from one of our newest partners, CDL Meals!  CDL Meals is a prepackaged, already prepared food delivery service that can offer great healthy eating options for our team while out on the road! They have a rotating seasonal menu, offer free Nationwide delivery, and have been kind enough to offer all friends and family of Long Haul 20% off to get started! We were fortunate to have CDL Meals offers us 4 free meals to sample about a month ago which were given out to drivers that just happened to be here in the shop and each of the drivers that sampled the meals stated that the flavor was outstanding!  If this is something that interests you, feel free to check out their website; www.cdlmeals.com and use our special code LHT20 to earn the savings. We value all our drivers and family members immensely and want to ensure that each of you have fulfilling, long careers with our company.  Healthy eating habits are a cornerstone of maintaining a healthy life, and CDL Meals is driving change in the industry with their innovative product lines.

Are You Gellin?

Although this weekend’s weather in Minnesota might feel more like November than January, don’t fool yourself by thinking that we’re out of the middle of winter yet.  Cold temperatures and an overnight freeze can occur faster than dispatcher Garth’s power walking pace and we need to make sure we’re ready for it!  Don’t forget how incredibly important it is to keep your drinks the only things on ice this winter by adding fuel additives to prevent from gelling up.  Tow bills, down time and nights in a motel room aren’t the ways that anyone makes money (legally at least) so keep your engines tuned up and ready to roll all winter long!  Thanks to all our teammates for kicking off 2020 to a great start, we can see all your hard work paying off!

Need (Ma)home(s) Time for the Big Game?

Home time, vacations and time out of the truck are three keys of ensuring that the hard work you put into your careers are paying off successfully for your personal lives as well. When it’s time to go home, please make sure you are communicating with our staff early and often to ensure that important plans aren’t missed.  We promise our drivers and teammates and opportunity to create wealth while working for us, but equally important is the promise of helping grow a long fulfilling career. We believe that this is composed just as much if not more with time out of the truck as it is spent within.

Three Keys for the Month

  1. CDL Meals is a great opportunity for us to stay on our healthy eating game while out on the road!
  2. Fuel additives are a huge component to a successful winter of trucking, take care of your engines early to prevent gelling up!
  3. Home time is best accomplished through early and often communication by all, let’s make it another fulfilling years on the road to your retirement!


We Reward our Drivers Safe Driving Habits!

When it comes to technology the devil is in the details and with our newest ELD technology it is important that we are fully informed on how to master every detail involved!  Now more than ever, we are seeing heightened regulations and inspections regarding hours of service and it is critical that we can accurately log and explain our logs to any officer or individual that stops us.  If you have any questions or still aren’t totally sure how to operate our newest technology, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Safety and ask for help.  We want to make sure that all of our teammates can maximize their time while out on the roads making revenue and running hard rather than facing citations or fines!
