NFI Driver earns highest recognition by Truckload Carriers Association

On March 26, Howard Robinson of NFI was awarded the TCA Professional Driver of the Year award at the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Annual Convention. Howard was one of five recipients of this distinguished title and is a shining example of perseverance, professionalism, and safety in the transportation industry.

Howard has been a driver for 30 years, starting his career with MCO Transport, which was acquired by NFI in 2022. Throughout his 30 years of driving, he has achieved a perfect record of zero accidents and violations. Howard stresses the importance of safety at every turn, and in 2023, he was a recipient of NFI’s Million Mile Award, which awards drivers for completing over a million safe miles.

“It’s exciting to have one of our own recognized with such an honor by the TCA. We pride ourselves on safety and our people,” said Brian Webb, President of Port Services at NFI. “Driving for more than 30 years and over a million miles without any accidents or violations is admirable. Howard sets a great example for all drivers, and we’re proud to have him on our team.”

At NFI, Howard is known for his radiant personality, neverending smile, and conscientious nature. He is highly regarded and cherished by his team, customers, management, friends, and family. Often the first in the yard and the last to leave, Howard is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the job gets done.

Outside of NFI, Howard has an extensive list of accomplishments. As a proud Veteran, Howard dedicates his life to serving others. Along with his wife, Judy, he leads a prison ministry and a Bible study at a local nursing home. Howard has transformed a troubled past and the lives of others through his unwavering commitment to his faith, family, and community. This award is a testament to his drive for excellence and paves the way for current and future NFI drivers.
