CFI Honors Hale’s Three Million Miles
Joplin, MO --- CFI , an international truckload carrier based in Joplin, Missouri, is pleased to announce the fifth driver in CFI history to reach three million miles.
Delmar Hale , who started driving for CFI in 1984, was inspired to drive professionally from a childhood dream. He feels that driving was a lot easier when he first started, but says it’s been good to him overall.
“You can’t let your guard down. You’ve got to pay attention at all times to stay out of trouble,” he advises. Hale resides in Cabool, Missouri, with his wife, Linda.
“CFI has had 623 professional drivers reach the one million mile mark, 66 professional drivers reach the two million mile mark, and only five professional drivers reach the three million mile mark during their driving careers at CFI,” remarks Herb Schmidt, president and CEO of CFI. “This commitment and loyalty exemplifies the professionalism of Delmar Hale and reflects CFI’s dedication to safety and customer service.”
CFI, founded in 1951, operates approximately 2,500 tractors and over 7,000 trailers and transports a variety of goods throughout the contiguous United States and Canada. CFI interlines with Mexican carriers at various border crossings to provide through-trailer service to Mexico. In addition to its Joplin headquarters, CFI operates four terminals and numerous drop lots along the border and throughout the United States. CFI and its subsidiaries* have 37 sales offices throughout North America and a work force of 3,000 people. The driver fleet is comprised of both company drivers and independent contractors.
