The bulk liquids market continues to grow, and that means transport services like GOCO Transports are growing, too. We like to not only get to know our staff a bit better, but to share their viewpoints of what it’s like to do what they do.
For truck drivers Drew Lassere and Paul Higginbotham, hauling liquid freight is more than just an exciting career. Being part of something bigger and doing valuable work with a supportive team is rewarding – in addition to the satisfaction of being home every night – a major consideration for many drivers.
