Juan Garcia has been driving over-the-road for 12 years and operates in Dart’s Super South Region. “I am happy to be working with Dart,” Garcia said at the Contractor of the Year ceremony in Dallas. “I appreciate all that everyone does and how the Dart team offers continuous support for me and other contractors.”
