Dan Einwechter, chairman and CEO of Challenger Motor Freight challenger motor freight inc, didn’t plan to get into the trucking business. But when he took an evening motorcycle safety course a couple of decades ago, he was surprised by what he learned.

Every truck fleet has to address a multitude of operational and safety demands, but few do so as well as Challenger Motor Freight. The company is known for its driver-friendly policies, professional development programs and diversity initiatives. It is also a champion in the areas of new entrant programs and military support.
