Cookeville OTL driver Scott Bonner initially came to Averitt in 2016 as a regional Truckload driver, and he’s been with OTL since April of 2017. He recently wrapped up a stint as lead driver for the Tim McGraw tour, and he loves the lifestyle that OTL provides.
“There are a lot of benefits to it,” Scott says. “It’s not super-hard work, and I enjoy it. We have a great crew and a great team. Everybody’s good to me. The crew that I’m with, you pretty much become part of the family with them. And you get to see a lot of the country that you wouldn’t normally get to see in regional Truckload. I’ve gotten to see Canada and 48 states.”
As a retired Air Force veteran, Scott likes the structure of his schedule on the road.
"I’ll know what’s going on pretty much the entire year,” says Scott, who makes regional runs when he’s not on tour. “There may be a couple events that drop off or get added, but it’s more predictable. Yes, I’m away from home a lot more, but Averitt is flexible with me. If you’ve got something that’s urgent, Averitt will make sure someone is able to come out there and fill in. We work together as a team to help people.”
For those who are interested in learning more about what it takes to be part of On Tour Logistics, Scott says there are several important things to remember.
“The biggest things on tour are managing your time, managing your rest and watching your clock,” he explains. “It's also important to represent our company and the tour in the right way.”
Scott adds, “If you see one of the OTL drivers out on the road, they’d be happy to give you the lowdown. I understand that it’s not for everybody, but I love it.”
