It is hardly an unusual sight for any motorist in the country, and certainly in Ohio, to see one or more commercial trucks on the roadway on any given day emblazoned with Wal-Mart’s written design and logo. The company is virtually unparalleled in the size and reach of its national distribution centers.

That scope of business activity — most specifically, the huge logistical task of transporting goods across all American states — centrally requires truck drivers, and lots of them.

In fact, Wal-Mart employs more than 7,000 drivers, with the company having high expectations of those professionals at the hiring stage and during their working careers. The company’s working truckers have a high hurdle to clear when seeking employment with Wal-Mart; a single moving violation will remove a job candidate from consideration, and each would-be employee must have a work history devoid of any truck accident within the past 250,000 miles driven.

A few drivers who clock accident-free miles year after year for Wal-Mart enter its pantheon of stars, being recognized for sterling driving records highlighted by millions of miles of no-accident driving.

Among those selected designees, the name Warren Greeno has most prominently emerged, with Greeno being recently spotlighted by Wal-Mart executives as the first company driver to ever log four million dent-free miles while hauling company goods.

To put that accomplishment into perspective, it can be simply noted that Greeno has averaged about 500 miles each working day of his 31-year career.

Greeno is far from a self-proclaimer concerning his feat. In fact, he says that on a few harrowing occasions he “was just waiting for the thump and the crash, but it never happened.”

If you see Greeno on the highway, you’ll know it. Wal-Mart has given him a new custom tractor trailer, with his name and driving accomplishment noted in writing on the rig.
