Meet Ben Goss from Fort Myers, Florida. Ben is a trucker who now drives for Arrow Trucking. Arrow Trucking spent its first 20 years as a small Oklahoma-based trucking company, quietly but efficiently serving the oil and gas industry across a seven-state area. But all of that changed dramatically in 1968, when Arrow was acquired by its present management. From its corporate headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Arrow Trucking now operates 1,450 tractors and 1,930 trailers, with terminals in six states.

As the largest state-based trucking company operating in Oklahoma, Arrow maintains Interstate Commerce Commission permits to transport general commodities throughout the 48 contiguous United States and into Canada with line haul and regional fleets. While Ben received eight job offers from trucking companies before he graduated, he chose Arrow. They hired him right out of school, and now he drives flat beds over the road for them.

Before signing on with Arrow, Ben held a variety of jobs that included Electrician and auto repossession. No wonder he wanted to drive trucks. Now Ben doesn’t have to worry about being shocked or shot. Ben told us his favorite thing about being a trucker is “seeing new places.” Can you imagine an office with a window and every day the view changes?

Ben decided on National Training Inc, to provide him with the training he needed to compete in the job market for two reasons. “National Truck Drivers School is the best in the nation, and they have a good reputation.” We agree with Ben on both counts, and we thank him for the kind words. Ben did have his challenges while with us in school. It appears that Ben found backing up these behemoth rigs a tad different than backing a repossessed car out of a driveway. With practice and guidance, Ben did learn and had no other difficulties with the training.

Ben’s pastimes include fishing and stock car racing. Before starting “Over the Road” driving, Ben used to race a 1974 Camero in the Pro-Stock class at Port Charlotte Raceway. He did it for a couple of seasons and managed to win six heats and two main events. Ben admits, “I was never very good, but I did enjoy doing it.” Ben has come to believe that for him, driving a vehicle that weighs 80,000 can be more profitable that driving a vehicle that weighs 2,800 pounds.

We would like to take a minute to express to Ben our gratitude for not only choosing to train with us, but for his commitment to trucking. Arrow is fortunate to have such a dedicated operator and we are proud to bestow Graduate of the Month honors on Ben.

Ben Goss, you are…
