Steve Williams, a veteran driver for Perdue Transportation, Inc., the truck fleet for Perdue Farms based in Salisbury Maryland, was named Maryland’s 2018 Driver of the Year by the Maryland Motor Truck Association (MMTA).  Williams delivers Perdue poultry products to stores.

“We’re so very proud of Steve Williams and this well-deserved recognition,” said Perdue Transportation Manager Jay Jones.  “Perdue’s professional drivers are some of the company’s most visible ambassadors, and Steve is certainly a role model for Perdue and all of our drivers.”

Williams has been a professional truck driver with Perdue for 25 years and has traveled more than 3 million miles without an accident.  That is the equivalent of circling the earth 120 times or making 12 trips to the moon and back.

Every year MMTA honors 12 professional drivers whose safe driving records and professional conduct earned them recognition as Maryland Drivers of the Year.  Williams was also recognized in 2018 by the National Private Truck Council as a National Driver All-Star for excellence in customer service, safely, compliance, and community service.

Williams is also very active volunteering with disabled children through the Special Olympics Truck Convoy and Operation Teddy Bear.
