Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Trucking Minnesota featured the incredible five-generation Viessman Trucking family story. Check out the full story here.
Viessman Driver Cortney Haugen says, “I liked being around trucks from a young age and thought I’d like to drive one when I was older.” In September 2021, she finally got her chance to drive a big rig and pull a tanker when she joined Viessman’s in Marshall, Minnesota.
Now more than a year later, she says becoming a Viessman driver was one of the best decisions she’s ever made for herself, but also for her family. “I really love what I do, although it can be a challenge at times, but I like a good challenge!” Cortney said. “Everyday is different. When you enjoy what you do, it doesn’t feel like work.”
Huge shout out to Cortney and all of our other amazing Viessman drivers. Share your Viessman story by sending a picture of you and your rig to Elizabeth Billups at firstname.lastname@example.org
