New 2016 & 2017 Trucks & Trailers Arriving Now
The new image of Hornady is hitting the road. With the new baja beige trucks and black trailers, we are moving forward into the next generation of the fleet line. The new Peterbilts feature the ISX Cummins Engine’s, which provide the needed power to do the job faster and easier. “The new Peterbilts are one of the most efficient and most comfortable environments for the professional driver,” stated Rick Powell, VP of Maintenance. The Peterbilt’s offer a generously sized sleeper that combines comfort with productivity in an ergonomic business area. The bunk holds an 80-inch mattress, and provides the amenities of home that Peterbilt is known for. The Model 579 Peterbilt is built to last. The new aluminum cab is solid and durable, with the highest quality fit and finish. An in-mold process embeds color directly onto the dash for a long-lasting finish that virtually eliminates fading, scratching and peeling.
Hornady Transportation Presented with Safety Award
Hornady Transportation was recognized and presented with the Engineers Award during the Annual Safety Awards Presentation presented by the Alabama Trucking Association's (ATA) Worker's Compensation Fund. This award honors transportation carriers that excel in their commitment to driver safety and creation of a safe work environment for their drivers and staff.
Joe Booker, Vice President at Hornady, stated, "This award reflects the outstanding leadership of our Safety Director, Wolf Lindh, and our Subrogation and Claims Manager, Debra Allred, for establishing and enthusiastically promoting a culture of safe work practices. Additionally, it would not have been possible without the commitment of our entire organization to embrace the culture. We are honored to have been recognized in this manner. It is truly representative of the combined efforts of our staff and drivers."
The ATA's Annual Safety Awards Presentation honors Alabama Trucking fleets that have posted the best accident frequency numbers for 2014. Categories are segregated by the type of operation and by the number of miles each fleet traveled in the state of Alabama last year.
The banquet was held Monday, March 23, 2015 at Pelham Civic Complex in Pelham, AL.

Talking Money and Hard Driving
Faced with a workforce challenge, this Alabama trucking company dug deep into its own pockets, investing $18 million in driver pay and training.
Chris Hornady, president of Monroeville-based Hornady Transportation LLC, is one of those owners who says he thinks of his employees as family.
But it takes more than words to make a family of 250 hard-traveling truck drivers with incomes slashed by drive time regulations. For Hornady, it took an $18 million investment — most of it in pay, training and home time directly benefiting his workers.
When the company began to notice a driver shortage, they listened to their employees on how to retain existing drivers and attract new recruits.
