Veteran, Contractor Buys His First Truck

Veteran Completes His Lease

Uses Bonus Check For Truck Down Payment

Stevens Transport driver James Hodge knows a lot about overcoming adversity. Following his retirement from military service, he tried his hand at running a small contracting business. But tough times followed, leading to the repossession of his pickup truck. Facing the looming foreclosure of his family’s home, James turned to the skills he originally mastered in the military, truck driving. He joined Stevens Transport and dedicated himself to his new career. In just 17 months, James is current on all his bills, has money in the bank and reached another goal of saving for the down payment on his very own truck. He credits a lot of his success to the success plan and mentors provided by Stevens Transport. And he thinks his greatest skill is the ability to observe, listen and learn.

There’s no reason to reinvent the wheel. Find someone successful [in trucking] and follow their lead. I followed the Stevens Transport plan and it worked!

James completed his 2-year lease in just 13 months by saving enough to purchase his first truck.

Congratulations James on reaching this career milestone! Your positive attitude, dedication, and hard work are great examples of how to achieve dreams.
