I have been a driver with Opies for 2 decades. I have never worried about taking out a load, because our dispatchers are great to work with. This company values honesty and are quick to have their team members’ back. Our President, Danny Opie, is quick to show his gratitude for my work through kind words and by just taking the time to give me a call and simply say ‘thanks.’ This company takes care of me from compensation to appreciation. I am grateful to be a part of the Opies family, now and for years to come.
