Steve Brantley, Sr. Vice-President of Terminal Operations, said "A&R has made significant investments to attract and retain drivers. Aggressively promoting home time and quality of life, the company has adopted out-and-back scheduling for most of its fleet. It starts with people and in this case our drivers. The need for drivers is more competitive today than at any time in the history of the industry. Our business continues to grow and our need for the best and safest drivers in the industry continues to grow. We are thrilled to be in a position of increasing driver wages for two consecutive years at record levels. Drivers are our face to our customers' client - their professionalism and commitment to safety and customer service is what makes A&R the leader in dry bulk transportation."

Brantley further commented, "In addition to driver wages, we continue to take a comprehensive approach toward our drivers and their quality of life. As a result, we are holding our 2019 insurance costs for our drivers at the same rate they are currently paying, we will be providing complimentary satellite radio service for their enjoyment and we will be launching a complete remodel and upgrade to our driver lounges and restroom facilities."
