Salisbury, MD (January 24, 2024) – Perdue Farms truck driver Robert Timmons, who has been with the fourth-generation, family-owned U.S. food and agricultural products company for 44 years, is celebrating four million accident-free driving miles professionally for Perdue. In the company’s almost 104-year history, he is the second driver to achieve this milestone.

At Perdue, there have been 184 Perdue drivers who have reached one million accident-free miles; 45 are two million safe-mile drivers; and 12 have achieved three million accident-free miles. Timmons joins Alvin Smith as the company’s only four million safe-mile drivers.
“Our drivers are among our most visible brand ambassadors and have the most direct contact with our customers,” said Tim O’Hea, senior director of transportation for Perdue Farms. “Robert achieving four million safe driving miles in just 43 years is no small feat and is a testament to his dedication not only to Perdue but also to our customers and those he shares the roads with every day.”
Throughout his time at the company, Timmons has delivered dressed poultry from Salisbury to Lewiston, North Carolina, delivered live haul and oil, has been an over the road driver delivering as far west as Iowa and throughout the entire Perdue marketplace and currently delivers local short haul loads.
