Waco Distribution Center Driver Earns National All-Star Status
Bruce Cameron, a driver with the Exchange for 16 years, has been named a 2020 All-Star Driver by the National Private Truck Council.
Cameron is the Exchange’s sixth driver in the past 11 years to earn All-Star status.
“It’s nice to have that recognition. It shows that people care about truckers and what they do—especially those who do it the right way,” Cameron said. “I am proud to represent the Exchange and grateful to everyone who nominated me.”
The NPTC, a trade association that advocates on behalf of private trucking fleets and their drivers, co-sponsors the award along with International Truck/Navistar. The All-Star designation recognizes 100 drivers who have exhibited an exceptional commitment to safety, compliance and customer service from June 2019 through May 2020.
Cameron joined the Exchange in 2004 and has driven 4.5 million miles during a 44-year career. His route takes him to Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City, Fla., then west to Fort Bliss in El Paso.
He started driving for the Exchange after an associate who was a friend of his told him about the job.
“The Exchange was a great opportunity for me, and I am happy to give back,” Cameron said. “Plus, I always get time to go home and see my family when I am on my runs.”
Winners were scheduled to be recognized at a conference in Orlando in September, but it was cancelled because of COVID-19 concerns. Instead, drivers are represented in an advertisement in the September issue of Fleet Owner magazine and will be invited to attend the NPTC’s 2021 Education Management Conference from April 25-27 in Cincinnati, where they will be recognized.
Col. Douglas Vallejo, deputy director, Logistics, said drivers who earn the award demonstrate a well-rounded record.
“It’s an all-encompassing nomination process that looks at a driver’s record—safety on the job, injuries, traffic history and compliance with internal policies,” Vallejo said. “Bruce’s record shows a totality of excellence and a commitment to living up to Exchange values to serve those who serve.”
