Bill Kerry DMC Driver of the Year



of Fremont Contract Carriers, Inc.



DMC Insurance is proud to name Rob Jensen of Fremont Contract Carriers, Inc., the 2024 DMC Driver of the Year. This prestigious award is presented annually to identify and celebrate the best-in-class drivers of DMC’s customers. The judging committee scores nominees based on their driving record, leadership within their organization, and service to their community and the trucking industry. Only one Driver of the Year is chosen from the many deserving applications submitted.

Rob was unanimously selected as the winning driver by a committee comprised of trucking industry experts. The award and accompanying prize package will be presented to Rob during an appreciation event that DMC and FCC will hold for the driver this summer. Representatives from DMC Insurance, along with Rob’s fellow drivers and staff, will be invited to attend to recognize Rob and celebrate his achievements.

“Rob is an excellent driver in all aspects. He is safety conscious, professional, timely, and a mentor to new employees. His continual dedication to maintaining safe roadways is evident over his long tenure with Fremont Contract Carriers.” – Trey Novotny, VP of Safety at Fremont Contract Carriers. 

While all the candidates were impressive, Rob’s long history of safe driving and mentorship to new drivers set him apart. He has been a professional driver for over 40 years and accumulated more than five million accident-free miles, four million of those miles being driven during his long tenure with Fremont Contract Carriers. Rob’s focus on professionalism and safety is evident through his six victories in the Nebraska State Truck Driving Championships, 23 years of recognition awards from the Nebraska Presidential Safe Driving Club, and 27 years as an ATA Safe Driver Club award winner. He and his wife Annett, also a professional driver, have devoted decades to helping other FCC drivers prepare and train to compete in the NE State Truck Driving Championships, a competition that promotes friendly competition, skill and safety tests, and remarkable vehicle control. Rob has also completed the peddle run for the charitable organization Wreaths Across America three times. His focus on safety and ongoing support of the trucking industry represents precisely the type of candidate we aim to honor through this award.

Fremont Contract Carriers was established in 1965 and is a premier transportation and logistics company with coverage throughout the United States and Canada. Based out of Fremont, NE, their organization offers a wide range of transportation services, including dedicated, medium to long-haul van, Midwest regional, Southwest regional, local van capacity, and flatbed.
