This week’s Driver Spotlight is on Linro Koester (Tractor 689)


Linro has been a part of the Pohl Transportation Family since 2020. Linro made the change to Pohl after seeing our trucks out on the road. He then did some research and saw we were close to his area and gave us a call.

In all of his years of driving, Linro has seen many changes in the trucking industry, with the biggest being the technology. Linro likes how technology has made his job easier and loves the Volvo’s. He enjoys how convenient the apps make weighing loads and fueling. Linro enjoys working at Pohl because everyone knows you, even the president. He is looking forward to hanging his hat here.

Some advice that Linro would like to give to current, new, and potential drivers is that communication is #1. It is always a two-way street and an open-door policy. He loves that Pohl is family oriented. Linro’s favorite restaurant is Hog Heaven, a BBQ joint. His favorite homecooked meal is meatloaf and mashed potatoes and favorite snack to grab on the go is mixed nuts.

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