Daniel Amador

Amador Express
(a FedEx Ground contracted service provider)
New Mexico – Step Van Class Champion

The third trip to the state TDC was the charm for Daniel as he took first place in the Step Van class to earn his spot in Orlando. Daniel, of Amador Express, which is contracted to provide service for FedEx Ground in the Albuquerque area, has been driving professionally for 32 years. He cites his wife Viola as his inspiration for staying safe on the roads, saying he wants to ensure he makes it home to her every night – and he’ll do what he can to help make sure other drivers he encounters are able to do the same. Daniel and Viola have a daughter, Francine.
