Skyline Transportation is excited to announce that Edward Szakacs has joined our fleet as a Professional Driver! Ed came to us with some local driving experience and completed a few weeks of Over-the-Road training with Jimmy Smith.
Before deciding to join Skyline, Ed was in the construction industry and did some work as an injection molding specialist. He made the transition to the transportation industry after researching the opportunities available in trucking and coming to the realization that it could be a long-term career in which he could excel. Ed also has several family members in the industry who gave him helpful hints and advice.
Ed was asked what he liked most about being a Professional Truck Driver, to which he responded, “I like the new experiences and challenges in the industry”. Ed said his Over-the-Road training was invaluable. He was able to gain a lot of knowledge and helpful hints while on the road with Jimmy.
Ed originally hails from Cleveland Ohio and is an avid Cavaliers and Browns fan. He is excited for the upcoming NFL season with all of the new player acquisitions the Browns have recently made! He moved to East TN back in 2017 and said he has enjoyed the area thus far. He has family both in Ohio and Corryton, TN.
Ed said he is very eager to get behind the wheel and on the road! Congratulations Ed! Skyline is proud of you and excited to welcome you to the team!
