Coming Soon: Driver Appreciation Week!
Driver Appreciation week is coming September 13-19! This year, every Roadrunner Freight IC is entered into a raffle to win a tractor cleaning basket including a Blue Beacon truck wash!
For every 1,000 miles you run on Roadrunner Freight terminal loads, you earn an extra entry. Keep driving all through August to rack up your entries. The winner will be announced on Thursday, September 17th during Driver Appreciation Week. Good luck!
A day in the life of an IC is never the same as the last, but these Roadrunner Freight ICs make sure they ship it like they own it every day! Here are our highlighted ICs for August.
