This week’s Driver Spotlight is on Kirk Syme (Tractor 734)

Kirk has been a part of the Pohl Transportation Family since 2019. Kirk decided to make the change to our team after meeting one of our drivers, David Streetman. Kirk has been previously named Driver of the Month and Driver of the Year – Congrats, Kirk! 

In all of his years of driving, Kirk has seen many changes in the trucking industry, with the biggest being the technology. Kirk likes the automatic Volvo’s, and said e-logs are better and easier to keep track of your hours. He also likes how handy GPS navigation is. Kirk enjoys working for Pohl because everyone is nice and he likes the familiarity of the customers. He said Pohl Transportation is a good company to work for. 

A tip to current, new or potential drivers that Kirk would like to give is to remember other vehicles don’t pay attention and to keep your cool. Kirk’s favorite kind of food to eat is Italian food and his favorite snack to grab on the go is cantaloupe. 

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