His customer service skills are second to none and we can always count on him to represent Long Haul Trucking in a positive manner on the road. Jon is a great representation of what a Long Haul Trucking teammate should be. Thank you, Jon, for all that you do to make us proud! #WeDriveLongHaul
Going Home for the Holidays?
With the holiday season in full swing, it’s very important that we remain mindful of practicing pro-active communication to ensure important holiday plans with family and friends aren’t missed! Part of our companies’ mission is to ensure all our teammates are able to spend the holidays in a satisfying, fulfilling manner, and a major factor that contributes to this happening is working with fleet and dispatch in a timely manner to be routed toward your preferred destination! We would like to wish all our teammates a very Happy Holiday Season and New Year!
Caring for Kids!
From November 15th through December 18th, Long Haul will be collecting gifts for our annual Caring for Kids Toy Drive. There are donation boxes staged at the entry way of Long Haul headquarters, we encourage and applaud all employees able to donate to brighten the holiday season for the youth in our surrounding region.

THE BOTTOM LINE
We Reward our Drivers Safe Driving Habits!
One tool that we always want our teammates to remain mindful of is utilizing our preferred fuel stops to save cash on discounts! When you log in to the driver portal on the Long Haul Trucking website, you are able to see all of our approved shops along with the discounts received from fueling there. In addition, we want all of our teammates to be aware that as of December 1st, 2018 Road Ranger is no longer under the Pilot umbrella. Please keep this in mind when selecting where to make your next fuel stop to ensure it’s as financially rewarding as possible. Thank you, all teammates, for thinking smart and saving money on fuel while out on the roadway!
