Oilfield trucking company gives drivers a reason to stay

Chuck Johnson, president and CEO of Utah-based Brady Trucking Inc., has made it his goal to retain company drivers.

While forming partnerships with some of the largest oilfield services companies in the world and doubling in size over a three-year period, Brady Trucking has reduced its driver turnover by 31 percent and has a goal to reduce turnover by another 20 percent this year.

Founded in 1980, Brady Trucking owns and operates more than 250 Peterbilt trucks and more than 300 trailers at transportation facilities throughout the Rocky Mountain region, including the Bakken shale play. It has terminals in Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and North Dakota.
