Robert Templin, independent contractor for Prime Inc., a leading international refrigerated, flatbed and liquid bulk truckload carrier headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, recently became a member of The Midnight Trucking Radio Network's Million Mile Club.
The Midnight Trucking Radio Network, including WBAP 820AM Radio in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas listening area, enters two drivers into its Million Mile Club each week during The Midnight Trucking Radio Network Show. To be eligible for club membership, a driver must have driven at least a million miles without a preventable accident. Templin, who has driven in excess of two million miles without a preventable accident and is a Prime Gold Millionaire, was named new club member for the week of February 18, 2002.
"We're very proud of Robert," says Max Kubin, fleet manager. "He is not a typical steering wheel holder or electronic cowboy; he's the professional's professional. He is very articulate and is always cognizant of customer service.
"Robert is an independent contractor," says Kubin, "but he's a company man at heart; he takes good care of the equipment and genuinely cares about people. I wish we had a whole bushel basket just like him!"
Templin has been with Prime's Refrigerated Division for more than 10 years. He has received numerous Prime Time Certified (PTC) awards for continuous on-time performance and has visited with students across the country through his participation in the "Trucker Buddy" program. In his spare time, the Batesville, Arkansas resident is an entrepreneur. He sells dental insurance plans and phone plans and also promotes wrestling.
