We are proud to announce the selection of Rob Jensen of Fremont Contract Carriers, Inc. as our 2024 DMC Driver of the Year. Rob has been a professional driver for over 40 years and accumulated more than five million accident-free miles, four million of those miles being driven during his long tenure with Fremont Contract Carriers. Rob’s focus on professionalism and safety is evident through his six victories in the Nebraska State Truck Driving Championships, his 23 years of recognition awards from the Nebraska Presidential Safe Driving Club, and his 27-years as an ATA Safe Driver Club award winner. He and his wife Annett, also a professional driver, have devoted decades to helping other FCC drivers prepare and train to compete in the NE State Truck Driving Championships, a competition that promotes friendly competition, skill and safety tests, and showcases remarkable vehicle control. Rob has also completed the peddle run for the charitable organization Wreaths Across America three times. His focus on safety and ongoing support of the trucking industry represent precisely the type of candidate we aim to honor through this award.

“Rob is an excellent driver in all aspects. He is safety conscious, professional, timely, and a mentor to new employees. His continual dedication to maintaining safe roadways is evident over his long tenure with Fremont Contract Carriers.” – Trey Novotny, VP of Safety at Fremont Contract Carriers.

Congratulations to Rob and the entire Fremont Contract Carriers team! DMC will hold a recognition ceremony and appreciation event for Rob at his home terminal this summer.
