Driver of the Month: Joseph Pellerin

Published: January 15, 2014

Joseph Pellerin received his Commercial Driver’s License in 2005 when he was just 22 years old, following in his father Sandrus Pellerin’s footsteps who was also a commercial driver. Born and raised in Louisiana he moved to Texas in 2008 looking for better opportunities. Joseph had worked retail prior to receiving his CDL because he wanted a career that would financially support his growing family. He started using his CDL working for a furniture moving company using a Box Truck, which then led to driving Tractor Trailer over-the-road. After time away from his family, and the inconsistency in pay, Joseph began looking for a route to provide more reliably for his family throughout the entire year.

In June 2013, he purchased a 2007 Freightliner Columbia and with a truck note in hand he was looking for a company in which he could pay his Owner-Operator expenses and support his family of 3 sons and 1 daughter. This is when he found Bee-Line, with our Texas Regional Freight he is home weekends and spends quality home-time with his wife Shannon and 4 Children (ages 16, 15, 11, and 2). Bee-Line gives him the support he needs to run his own business and the financial security he needs to provide for his family. We do everything we can to make it easier on the Owner Operator, so providing for the family is much easier.

With Bee-Line’s support system, in just 6 months, he has the income and the flexibility to plan quality home time with his family. Bee-Line knows the importance of Family as we have been Family Owned and Operated for 50 Successful Years. Last year Joseph was able to spend a nice vacation in California, which is his Family’s favorite vacation spot. They visited Hollywood, Los Angeles and San Diego and the family was able to spend quality time on the beach, Hollywood Walk of Fame and other vacation spots.

Joseph Pellerin is a stellar driver; always ready for dispatch and always on-time. He has a fantastic attitude towards his job! He has proven himself to be an exceptional driver and we are proud to name him the January 2014 Bee-Line Driver of the Month. Congratulations, Joseph!
