Forward has provided them the miles and the money they needed to be successful, and after some time helped them pave the path to becoming fleet owners. Since 2019, they have grown to a fleet of three trucks with Forward and are able to balance owning and operating a thriving business. "Without the help of them, I don't know if I could've balanced it," Stacy said. "In 2019, we never would have dreamed where we're at now. It's a dream come true and it's only getting better." Stacy and Robert's road to success doesn't stop there. In the future they hope to grow even bigger by adding more trucks on the road and more people to their team that enjoy driving. "When you enjoy it, you strive for even more."
