EP31: A Good Samaritan on Two Wheels with Benjamin Bernard

The Six-Figure Trucker highlights the successful men and women behind the wheel of the beautiful business of trucking. But it’s not always and only about making money here at SFT. We enjoy highlighting the incredible people that make the wheels of this industry roll. Today we catch up with one of our drivers as he helps to provide relief and aid to the areas in Florida that were recently battered by Hurricane Ian. Benjamin Bernard is thrilled to spend over two weeks on the grown in the Fort Myers area in an attempt to do his part to help his fellow man.

When he’s not out saving the world, Benjamin fills the free time afforded him in driveaway with numerous other ventures and interests. From the full remodel of his house to his side business in welding, he’s a regular jack of all trades. He’s also a motorcycle enthusiast who’s been known to strap his motorcycle to a deck set for a quick and cost-effective return trip. We’re pleased to welcome the bright and talented Benjamin Bernard to the show on today’s episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
