You know that person who always brightens a room when they walk in? At Nussbaum, that’s Dale Littlefield.
He’s always wearing a smile and leaves more in his wake. Known far and wide for his “office shenanigans,” Dale knows how to pull a good practical joke. But he also knows when to get serious and cares deeply about the safety and well-being of our drivers. Dale used to drive himself and knows the joys and trials of being out on the road. Now, as a Safety Supervisor, he combines driving experience with business knowledge to mentor, correct, and encourage our drivers.
Packed full of “Daleisms,” funny stories, and a few startling surprises, we’re sure that this episode will put a smile on your face. We also hope it leaves you with greater empathy for America’s truck drivers.

“I’ve always been a firm believer that laughter cures a lot of things.”
“If you hear strange noises, I’m eating a popsicle and I don’t want it to melt.”
“I tell them [drivers] that I don’t want to sound like their mother, but I don’t want anything to happen to them.” “This is the only job I had that I could leave my billfold on my desk, be gone a week, and not have to worry about it being missing. And that’s rare to find.”
