FedEx announced for the second time in 3 years Saul Lerma, President and Owner of Lerma Transport Inc., was honored as the 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year! With a strong focus on the community, safety and his employees there is a reason why Saul was chosen again for this award. Previously Saul received the FedEx Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2014, and before that the Western Regional Award in 2011.
Continuous improvement and training is a key factor in the success at Lerma Tranport Inc.. Saul and his team have a strong focus on safety and customer service with an implementation of weekly meetings to stress the importance of safe driving habits and ways to improve customer service.
I appreciate my drivers, and I appreciate my supervisor for following the set vision we have for this company. My drivers to me are like my family. My drivers are the ones that make a lot of things happen, no matter what projects we have for them or company changes we do. They adapt quickly to them because they believe in what we are doing is the right thing.
Over the years Saul has been one of our loyal customers, coming to us when he needs to update or replace trucks in his fleet. We would like to congratulate Saul and his family of drivers and employees on the 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
