"Mr. Wind" Named SC&RA Truck Driver of the Year
Rudy Moreno, Anderson Trucking Service, St. Cloud, Minn., was named Truck Driver of the Year by the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association.
In his 17 years with the company, he has driven more than 1.4 million accident-free miles as a professional driver, while earning a reputation for maintaining a top-notch work ethic.
He also is regarded as a consummate planner, an attribute that has proven significant while transporting more than 350 wind towers without incident. Individual components may be as large as 118 feet long and 15 feet 2 inches in diameter. When these components are measured on a tractor-trailer, they can run up to 210 feet long by 15 feet wide and weigh up to 250,000 pounds. He was one of the first drivers in his company entrusted to deliver wind-tower components, and subsequently earned the nickname of "Mr. Wind."
