Truck Driver & YouTube Video Producer
King DRodge is the handle of Stevens Transport’s driver David Rodgers. When David became a truck driver with Stevens Transport, he knew it might be a challenge to stay in touch with his family and friends and share the places he was experiencing in his new truck driving career. We sat down with him to ask why he started posting his videos on YouTube and learn about the motivation behind it. King DRodge explained that he was fed up with the negative, angry rant videos he was seeing so frequently from truck drivers. David’s own experience led him to focus on the better side of trucking. He wants to share with those new to truck diving that it’s possible to “be happy, enjoy a trucking job, and live a great life.”
“Chooses To Be Happy”
As King DRodge likes to say in his videos, he “chooses to be happy.” There’s negative in everything, but as he puts it “if you focus on the positive and handle the negative, he feels, life will be great.” For visitors to his channel, he says be prepared to be “motivated, happy, inspired and a go-getter.” And we might add, entertained as well. King DRodge’s infectious smile and positive attitude have led to his success with Stevens Transport. The honest, straightforward approach of his videos helps show new truck drivers the value of what he likes to call the “OTR life:” by being committed, giving your best effort, and making the most of every opportunity.
Stevens Contractor, David Rogers
As a driver for Stevens, David is part of the Contractor Division and it didn’t take long for him to realize that leasing was the way to go. He saw how successful his trainer was and signed up as soon as he could. He had a little apprehension since he was new to trucking. He also had some negative opinions from friends, but after doing his research, he took the challenge.
Joining the Contractor Division is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It changes your life right before your eyes.
– David Rodgers
His own success, coupled with discussions from other drivers, convinces him Stevens has the best leasing program in the industry. He’s thankful Stevens pays his CDL school tuition, basically receiving his schooling for free. Now he has an exciting, successful career. He says, “I’ll be a truck driver for the rest of my life. I love it.”
He realizes not everyone has the same experience, but his has been awesome and he gets excited telling people about the success he is having with the Stevens Contractor Division.
