Driver spotlight December 1, 2017 - Ed Manley
         Each month we here at BD Transportation will be spotlighting two of our drivers. First off this month is Ed Manley. Ed has been with us since January 2, 2015. Ed started driving semis at the age of 21 and has always been fascinated with trucks. His uncle used to drive trucks and that really inspired Ed at a young age that this was something he wanted to do when he got older. He started driving dump truck at the age of 18 and has since driven for 28 years. There’s not a lot that this man hasn’t seen on the road during that time. He’s also been to 48 of 50 states.

         When Ed isn’t behind the wheel of one of our Volvos, you can still find him on the road doing what he loves best, and that’s riding on his Harley. He started riding when he was just 8 years old and then had his first dirt bike at the age of 10; a Yamaha 50. Everyone has passions, and this is Ed’s, but it takes something special to turn passion into compassion and that’s exactly what Ed has done with his. For the last 3 years Ed has participated in a riding benefit Toy Run with the Highway Hikers, which started in 1976. The Toy Run helps provide toys for needy children at Christmas. They ride from Medway, OH to Springfield Fairgrounds and drop off the toys and/or donations every year.

         Just last month Ed took off on a Saturday to meet up with Terry from Katayama (one of our suppliers), to ride in a benefit for a 15 year old girl diagnosed with Leukemia. They had over 60 bikes participate in this generous event.

         Each of our drivers are special, but it’s drivers like this that show BD Transportation’s are hands down the best drivers out there. These men and women work hard and aren’t just faceless names delivering America’s goods. We just want to say thank you to Ed and all of our drivers for the hard work that you do.
