Our first Road Team Captain spotlight features professional driver David Conkling. David, an army veteran, has driven for Werner for 11 years and has been a trainer for 10 years. He currently drives on the Toro account for Werner dedicated. He has driven over 1 million safe driving miles and was recently selected to drive the first Operation Freedom truck as part of the Werner military program, Operation Freedom.

He served in the United States Army as a tank commander with the 72nd tanker battalion, Camp Rose, Korea. When asked how his military experience has helped him in his driving career, David said, “It has taught me discipline, time management, self-awareness and reliance.”

Conkling is a seasoned driver who has driven trucks since 1976. As his family has a long standing history in trucking, he grew up in the industry. His father ran a small fleet back in the 50’s, so he grew up in and around terminals and trucks. His great-grandfather even had a delivery service that utilized mule team wagons in Redwood, Minnesota. He can truly say that he was born into the trucking lifestyle.

Conkling has been married to his high school sweetheart for 43 years. He is a proud father and grandfather and he currently resides in Metairie, Louisiana.
