A I started driving 42 years ago. My best friend & mentor, my father-n-law & a marine, introduced me to the business. I started with Dillon 5 years ago but it took me 14 years to get here. When I first heard about Dillon Transportation, Mr. Dillon had a waiting list. I eventually made it here though & so glad I did.
