For Suzanne, a local DCS driver, being able to connect with the same customers on her routes and going home each day make her job a great fit for her.
“Local driving, for me, is important because you get to go to familiar places, and you get to have a connection with all these different customers that you meet,” she said. “But on top of that, it’s also a great opportunity for you to actually have home time still. So you can spend more time with your family.”
