KCH Transportation values long term relationships with carriers that get the job done. We know the demanding schedule, responsibility, and overall hardship that carriers deal with daily is a lot to handle. With that in mind, we want to make sure we appreciate carriers and drivers for everything they do.
In our first edition of the Carrier Spotlight, we are featuring Antonio Orange, an owner operator for West Motor Freight!
Antonio is from Atlanta, GA and by that he means, ” I’ve lived in just about every area you can think of in the Atlanta area.” Antonio drives an International Prostar and travels approximately 90,000 miles a year! In his time away from the road, Antonio enjoys spending time with his family and “watching all of the Atlanta/Georgia teams embarrass me every week”
When asked about the craziest load he’s every been on, he told us about driving back to Atlanta from Charlotte through an ice storm. “My craziest moment driving is returning back to Atlanta from Charlotte with all the roads covered with ice. At one point, a car in front of me came to complete stop on a bridge. I remember stopping for a moment and the next thing I know my whole truck and trailer is sliding back. I remember praying not to hit anyone. Luckily I didn’t, but after that I had to wait for hours in the truck for ice to clear off the road.”
When talking about why Antonio chooses to work with KCH, he told us; “I choose KCH because of excellent communication when it comes to details of the load. I love working with brokers such as KCH’s Josh Nance, because he’s consistent and treats the Drivers/Dispatchers he works with like family.
We sincerely appreciate carriers like Antonio. He gets the job done, and does it well. Our very own Josh Nance had this to say about him, “In my years of transportation, Antonio is by far one of the best drivers I’ve had the luxury of working with. He is a great family man who takes pride in the work and service he provides. I would trust Antonio with any shipment out there and know that it would be handled professionally and efficiently. The industry needs more people like Antonio and I am grateful we got to know each other and that we truly became friends, not just work acquaintances.”
Thank you Antonio!
