Bennett has many Driver Friendly Programs we call “A+ Advantages” designed to support and engage our Owner Operators and Contractors.
Jonajah Abdussabuur is turning a lot of heads these days – that is when the petite female driver jumps out of the driver’s seat of the big rig she’s driving for Bennett International Group’s DriveAway division. And Abdussabuur said she loves some of the looks she tends to get…The “You’re driving that” look.
Abdussabuur, of Wilmington, Del., said at the age of 20, she wasn’t focused and not sure of what she wanted to do. With her mother a driver of a school bus and her brother a driver for the state, she was encouraged to try her hand at the wheel, and on her 21st birthday, she got her commercial driver’s license and hit the road. She’s been driving now for more than nine years.
After some prompting from a coworker who had started driving for Bennett, Abdussabuur applied and began driving for Bennett too. That was a little more than three years ago.
“I tell people all the time I love the job, and I love the company,” she said. “It was the best fit for me.”
Abdussabuur said that DriveAway has more than enough work so she drives exclusively for Bennett, and she can work as much or as little as she wants to. With her love of travelling, she can use driving to her advantage by looking for the areas she wants to visit and then she plans her runs accordingly using Bennett’s load boards.
