ST. LOUIS (March 13 ,2020) – Kennith Bone from Fry-Wagner Moving and Storage, St. Louis, Missouri, was awarded United Van Lines’ Van Operator of the Year Award for Logistics. The award recognizes Bone’s outstanding performance in the areas of customer service and safety. United Van Lines Chairman Barry Vaughn and President and CEO Marc Rogers presented the award to Bone at the company’s recent conference in St. Louis.
In his 35 years in the industry, Bone has driven roughly 3.5 million miles. Bone said, “Everyday is different, every job is different, weather and traffic are always different and you don’t see the same person everyday – that is what I like about my job.” Bone also is the recipient of the 2019 AMSA Super Van Operator Award for the Special Commodities category, which recognizes drivers and owner-operators who are the best of the best in providing safe, reliable, and customer-oriented transportation.

There are more than 4,300 drivers in the United Van Lines system, and Bone was one of three winners this year. The van operator of the year began in the late 1970s to recognize the men and women who sacrifice so much for a life on the road and who help other families through one of the most stressful times in their lives.
