This week’s Driver Spotlight is on Alex Kidd (Tractor 768)

Alex has been a part of the Pohl Transportation Family since 2015. Alex heard about Pohl through one of our current drivers, Eric Booth. Eric and Alex previously worked together, and once Eric came to Pohl, Alex also made the switch.  Alex has had the privilege of driving one of our LoneStar tractors and has been Driver of the Month multiple times – Congrats Alex! 

In all of his years of driving, Alex has seen many changes in the trucking industry, with the biggest being how many people are now on the roadways. Alex had to adjust to the change from manual to automatic trucks, and for the most part likes the automatics in most of the truck models. Alex has pros and cons of paper logs vs. e-logs.  When you ran on paper logs, Alex said you could run on your own time. When you use e-logs, Alex said it keeps you in line with your hours of service. Alex enjoys working at Pohl because they pay you when they route you through your house for hometime.   

Some advice that Alex would like to give to current, new and potential drivers is to stay in the right lane when you can and that it is safer to back into parking spots instead of pulling in.  Alex enjoys eating at different restaurants like Chinese or Mexican places and his favorite snack on the road is beef jerky, Nutella or peanut butter. 

Thank you, Alex, for being a part of the Pohl Transportation Family.
