The Road to New Opportunities: Driving for Tyson Foods
Pat Coonce, Associate Director of Transportation
As the youngest over-the-road driver that Tyson Foods has ever employed, 21-year-old Zane utilizes knowledge passed down through understanding, value, and trust. Continuing down the path in driving, he’ll leverage top safety training and emerging technologies to build a successful career.
For the Frosts, driving has led to a fulfilling career for Loyd,
a lifetime of opportunity for Zane, and a sense of belonging
to the Tyson Foods family for a father and son.
Whether we’re working with a seasoned driver like Loyd, or a rookie like Zane, we’re constantly looking for ways to train and create safer conditions for our drivers. A couple of examples include:
- The Hadley Smart Valve means less strain on drivers and enables improved valve response time for extra control and easier coupling/uncoupling of trailers, among other features.
- The Bendix Wingman Fusion system provides a combination of safety technologies to deliver comprehensive driver assistance and various road-monitoring sensors.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for how we’re putting safety first. For many, driving with Tyson Foods turns a career in to more than just a job.
