Happy New Year!
January is off to a snowy and cold start for many within the Buchanan family. Employees & drivers alike have endured the "coldest day of their life" according to some meteorologists. While the cold snap is not quite over, once again, Buchanan continued providing quality service to our customers just as we would if it were the 4th of July.
Earlier this month, our Finance Team finalized some of the numbers for 2018. When the total revenue number of $205M was confirmed, Becky & I sat in amazement, awe & sincere gratitude for each of you. Without you, none of this would be possible. When we started this company with one truck and two trailers, we never dreamed we would have 300+ drivers, 1400+ trailers, a large logistics division and offices throughout the United States. We thank each and every one of you for the part you've played, and continue to play, in making this company what it is.
We are excited to move into 2019 and work toward our five year goal of being a billion dollar company. Nelson Mandela said, "It always seems impossible until it is done." We have seen this prove itself true time and time again with this company and look forward to all 2019 has in store for us. With the groups we have in place, we truly believe we can accomplish this.
Stay the course, good things are happening. 2019 is going to be a great year.
Geary & Becky
