We are excited to announce Coastal Plains Trucking has partnered with Blueboard to create a recognition program that rewards team members with hand-curated experiences, both in-home and out in the world. Blueboard gives us a chance to say “Thank You” when team members go above and beyond at work by providing them the chance to gain experiential rewards that are memorable, shareable, and personal. Three award recipients were already recognized for their outstanding efforts in process improvement: Alexis Harrison, Richard Howard, and Cheryl Ducharme. Congratulations!

Out of this World
Did you know Coastal Plains Trucking keeps things moving across the continental United States and into outer space? We’re proud to honor Eric Pielecki (left). Eric hauled many loads out to the Blue Origin site – where private citizens Jeff Bezos, Mark Bezos, Wally Funk and Oliver Daemen became astronauts following a successful round trip past the Kármán Line, the internationally recognized boundary of space. This project has been Eric’s main focus for several years. Following the success of New Shepard’s recent mission, we recognized Eric for his efforts with a special award (presented by Glenn Brewer, right).
