De Pere, Wis. (June 11, 2019) – Wisconsin-based employer and for-hire truckload carrier Paper Transport, Inc. (PTI) is proud to announce that professional driver Ross Christensen is the KBX Logistics 2018 Driver of the Year.

A national award selected from a pool of 2,800 drivers from 44 different trucking companies, it recognizes safety, fuel conservation, miles driven and the exceptional service the driver provides. In 2018, Christensen had over 137,500 miles with zero preventable incidents or accidents, achieved a 100% on-time service score and consistently achieved 8.8 mpg.

“Ross prides himself on doing the job the right way and being safe while you do it,” said Wes Kornowske, PTI vice president of operations. “In addition to his own individual success, Ross is well-known at PTI as a top-of-the-line driver, training new dedicated drivers during the onboarding process.”

Christensen has been a professional Class A CDL truck driver for 20 years and the last two of those years he’s driven on the PTI Midwest Dedicated fleet parking in Green Bay. He lives in Oconto with his wife, Courtney, and their three children.

“He’s a big-time family man who loves to spend time with his wife and toss the baseball around with his kids,” Kornowske said. “Plus, he’s heavily involved with his kids’ Oconto area baseball clubs. From spring to summer, it’s all baseball, baseball and more baseball for them. He’s a great example of a community leader.”
