Welcome to our #WithWhitney Interview Series! We are interviewing our team, drivers, and customers to learn about their experience with Whitney Transport.
Meet Ledian Yera
Ledian first joined Whitney Transport as an owner-operator in January 2019. At the time of this interview, Ledian was driving his truck as one of our valued owner-operators. After experiencing our values come to life in our operations, he joined the team as a Logistics & Safe Operations Specialist. Ledian owns two trucks that remain a part of our fleet.
What do you like about working with Whitney Transport?
I like that they uphold their family values. It’s one big family here; the way we work and the way we communicate with each other. That’s what I enjoy the most.
What was the most important thing for you when you were looking to join a company?
The most important thing for me was finding a company that would keep me busy. I wanted to keep both my trucks on the road, have a good steady workflow, and for the company to have good values especially integrity.
What about the team do you like?
The people are very friendly. They treat each other like family. They all work very synergistically together.
What’s your favorite part of the day as a driver?
My favorite part of my day is driving. I always thought truck driving was like an office job but you know the view out of your window changes every couple of seconds. So that’s what I enjoy.
What do you like most about your experience at Whitney Transport?
The technology we use, how we have everything electronic. We’re trying to steer away from paperwork. We’re keeping things 2019!
