I spent a little time with Spencer, Tenn.-based owner-operator Jerry Boyd, leased to Bennett Motor Express now for 20 years, on Wednesday this week. He’d taken his 2016 International ProStar (Cummins-powered) in for service at Landmark International in Cookeville, Tenn, and was also working through some of the details of a new truck order he’s planning with sales rep Corey Price there (more on that in the April issue, though he’s angling to make it his final truck, to finish out five more years of trucking as an owner-operator under warranty).
Boyd’s 2016 ProStar had something on its front that you don’t see very often in middle Tennessee.
The necessity of the Alaska plate comes by way of the fact that Alaska is not part of the IRP apportioning program. The good news is, Boyd may well get an opportunity to make the most of the investment with a return trip north later in the year. Here’s hoping it happens, Jerry!
A few more shots from the morning out at Landmark follow.
