"We're excited at Holland to see that our volumes are building as customers experience the quality service that our team delivers every day," said Holland President Jeff Rogers. "We have a great team at Holland and our drivers are champions of safety and customer service. We are the on-time carrier and our professional drivers are at the forefront of that commitment to our customers," added Rogers.

Herschel Evans, a Holland city driver from Atlanta and former winner of the Five-Axle Class at the National Truck Driving Championships, summed up the opportunity to join the Holland team this way: "Holland is a premier customer service carrier. For 17 years I have been a part of a team that is focused on quality service and on-time delivery. My father was a mechanic in the industry and I followed in his footsteps to become a driver. I enjoy every day of my job as part of the Holland team."

Holland currently has approximately 1,700 over-the-road drivers. Among these, more than 450 have driven one million accident-free miles and nearly 100 have driven 2 million accident-free miles.
