One such dedicated driving hero is Gary Marr. Gary isn’t new to the transportation sector and has been with the Oakley family for more than four years.
Let’s get to know local driver Gary Marr with a Q&A:
Q: How and when did your trucking career begin?
A: I started driving trucks while in the Michigan Army National Guard. I started out driving a dump truck and finally moved up to semi-hauling heavy equipment.
Q: What drew you to this industry?
A: I got into this career because I was looking for work, and my older brother recommended I try it.
Q: What is your favorite part about being a truck driver?
A: My favorite part of this career is the daily challenges - you never know what is coming next - and the freedom of not being stuck in an office.
Q: Why did you choose Oakley Transport as your home?
A: I used to go to Miami and would drive past them. I thought, “if I ever moved to Florida, I would want to work there.” Plus, I noticed the shiny equipment.
Q: What advice would you give to someone who is interested, but unsure, about joining the trucking industry?
A: This isn’t a job. It’s a life style. If you’re willing to put in the effort, the rewards can be very gratifying.
