David Lowry, CEO of Bennett Motor Express, was featured in a recent article by Long Haul Paul from Overdrive magazine. The article focuses on David’s latest initiative for a “Large Car Campground” in Joplin, Missouri, for Bennett owner-operators. With there being many concerns for owner-operators to face at current truck stops, the idea was to create a place for Bennett drivers to be comfortable and make their lives better.
“Joplin is such a great town for trucking”, Lowry noted. “We found a farmhouse with an old-style barn on 40 acres, and decided to make a resort for our drivers” – David Lowry, CEO of Bennett Motor Express
David adds, “My goal is to have [Large Car Campgrounds] strung throughout the country. We’ve also put in one in Casa Grande, Arizona, and have plans for one in Morton, Illinois. They are available for all of our folks to enjoy and, possibly in the future, for others outside the company as the network expands.”
