|Scott's career in the trucking industry started in 1976 spanning more than three decades. Scott hauled commercial explosives from 1976 until 1999. Scott attended Kentucky Tech to become a diesel mechanic. Before becoming a truck driver, he served in the Navy as a 2nd Class Petty Officer in three different submarines between 1971 and 1976. In his spare time, which he said he has very little, Scott enjoys fishing and is a member of the Masons Lodge in Nebo Kentucky. |
"Scott Green is a very pleasant man, driver and coworker. He calls if he has any questions or issues with a load or preplan immediately. Should a problem arise during a load, he is quick to advise me which allows me to cover other issues with shipper, receiver and customer. As Scott and I were talking the day of the presentation, he said the same thing I told him during our phone orientation, “communication is the name of the game”, and this is so true. He is a great driver, efficient and always timely with everything. It is a pleasure to work with drivers such as Scott Green. He makes my job more enjoyable! Thanks for the great job you do Scott, for me and for Ozark!!"
