Reveille Trucking, Inc. began in March 1995 in Harlingen, Texas as a small local carrier serving the fast-growing maquila industry along the U.S./Mexico border from Brownsville to Laredo.

When did Reveille Trucking start?
Soraya Garcia Vasquez, Office Manager: “It started in 1995, with a couple of trucks that actually belonged to our owner, Mr. David O’Brien, he started purchasing his own equipment. So we have done a lot of growing since then. And we do have several trucks in order that we’ll be coming into this year. And we just started looking forward to a very big bright future with the company. Wherever there is freight, we are licensed drive anywhere in the United States.”
What type of schedule do Reveille Drivers have?
David Garza, Operations Manager: “Generally, our drivers, our goal is to have them out for five to six days having to come home for two days, so they can be with the families. Most of our drivers, I would say at least 70% of them have been here for at least 10 years. The reason we have such great driver retention is because of that they go out 1500 miles one way, and they come right back home, they’re home weekly, that’s the family-based environment that we talked about is because our guys, when they’re on the road, they’re driving and when they’re at home, they’re at home.”
Can you describe the environment Reveille Trucking provides its drivers?

At the same time. I think our boss does a very good job of taking care of everyone. I mean, we have 100% paid insurance here because he’s making sure that everyone has the full insurance coverage and everyone has the benefits that they need to make sure that we’re all healthy and happy.
