We meet with our driver advisory board on a quarterly basis to learn where we can improve as a company.


The GP Transco driver advisory board is a place for us to learn from those who make it possible for us to provide outstanding service to our customers - our drivers. The board consists of some of our most professional, knowledgable, and enthusiastic drivers with whom we go over our challenges, policies, changes, future improvements, and more, on a quarterly basis. Each day-long board meeting provides us with highly valuable information which helps us make our drivers' work safer, more efficient, and more pleasant. Learn about the latest advisory board meeting below. Our driver board members then help disseminate the information discussed to the rest of our fleet.
