“I have been in the food business for 40 years and began my career as a driver. IFDA gives the professional driver the stage to showcase the skills and professionalism they use to help drive such an important part of our economy and that affects so many people‚Äôs daily lives. If any company is not supporting this program by involving their drivers they are missing the boat.”
