Hailing from Houston, Texas, Franklin has been delivering for Moffitt Services since June 2021. He now lives in Midland, Texas where he used to work in the oilfields for 13 years. Now Franklin delivers fuel and lubricants all over West Texas and New Mexico, covering up to 400 miles a day with 2-6 stops. In comparison with the Houston area (10-15 stops in 250 miles) this makes for a long drive in between stops!
On his long drives, Franklin listens to pop music, and his go-to meal in between stops is tacos. Although he doesn’t quite enjoy getting beat up in the cab while driving down bumpy roads, Franklin’s favorite part of being at Moffitt is “working with the pros.” When he’s not working, Franklin’s favorite hobby is eating good steak and beer.
In order to become a Moffitt driver, each driver must go through a two week training program. During the first week, a veteran driver will drive while the new driver learns in the passenger seat. For the second week, the new driver will drive, while the veteran driver observes in the passenger seat.
Most truck drivers travel the country, and their biggest challenge is staying awake and living most of their lives in a truck cabin. For Moffitt drivers, the challenge is quite different. These drivers are not only driving, but they are loading and unloading large amounts of fuel at each stop. When a driver arrives to a location, they’re constantly having to do math and know how much fuel to put in each tank, depending on how much is already there.
Not only that, the intricate process also involves checking for spillage, making sure the hose is positioned properly go through a large checklist of procedures during every fuel delivery and transfer. Before loading the fuel tank, the driver checks all hoses for leaks or wet spots and verifies that there is sufficient space available in the tank for fuel.
