Speaking with professional driver Daniel Cantu, it’s easy to understand how he achieved 2 million safe driving miles. A consummate professional with a personal drive to always perform at his best, Cantu was presented the award at a special Second Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony at Werner’s terminal in El Paso, Texas.
A Werner driver since 1994, Cantu knew at an early age he wanted to drive a truck, and he takes his career very seriously – right down to the very last detail.
“When you represent the company as a driver, you should always be well groomed,” he said. “Customers notice, and you feel refreshed and better able to perform your job.”
Cantu advises drivers new to the industry to take their time and avoid rushing.
“Take a couple of extra minutes to double check your equipment, and you will save your life as well as the lives of others,” he said.
Cantu referred to his 2 million mile achievement as a great accomplishment for himself and for his family.
Cantu resides in El Paso, Texas, and enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.
