Hill-Rom Drivers Exhibit Excellence This Winter

first_imgHill-Rom’s over the road truck drivers have had zero non-preventable accidents this winter.This winter has not been kind for drivers locally and across the nation. It isn’t an easy chore to navigate an 18-wheeler on slick roads either.Although the over the road drivers of Hill-Rom have dealt with difficult driving conditions throughout North America, there have been zero non-preventable accidents this winter.It is quite an accomplishment considering the fleet of 45 drivers routinely deliver company product in nearly every U.S. state, and travel as far north as British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.“They’ve done a great job this year considering the winter that we’re having,” said John Vogelsang, distribution manager for Hill-Rom in Batesville. “It’s not just here in the region but everywhere.”“Overall, these guys have done a very very good job considering the conditions we have encountered this winter.”last_img read more

Vivo’s IPL 2020 exit is not a `financial crisis’ – Sourav Ganguly

first_imgTHE exit of the Vivo as IPL’s title sponsor for the 2020 season is a “blip” according to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, and not a “financial crisis”.The title sponsorship is a significant part of the IPL’s commercial revenue, part of which is shared by the eight franchises. In 2015, Vivo replaced Pepsico, who pulled out as IPL’s title sponsors two years before the contract ended.In 2017 Vivo formally bagged the IPL title sponsorship until the end of the 2022 season, paying nearly US$241 million.While BCCI is yet to announce how it would find a replacement for Vivo for the 2020 IPL which begins on September 19, Ganguly said the board was well prepared to handle the situation.“I wouldn’t call it as a financial crisis,” Ganguly said yesterday while speaking during a webinar organised by Learnflix, an education app in India. “It’s just a little bit of a blip and the only way you can do it is by being professionally strong over a period of time.“Big things don’t come overnight. And big things don’t go away overnight. Your preparation for a long period of time gets (you) ready for losses, gets you ready for successes.”“You keep your other options open. It is like Plan A and Plan B. Sensible people do it. Sensible brands do it. Sensible corporates do it. BCCI, it’s a very a strong foundation – the game, the players, the administrators in the past have made this game so strong that BCCI is able to handle all these blips.”Ganguly also touched briefly on ICC’s decision on Friday to retain India as hosts for the 2021 men’s T20 World Cup. “India was designated (to host) the 2021 and 2023 World Cups so there is not a big change in that. Yes, the COVID-19 situation had kept everybody alarmed, but that’s the way it is.” (ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more
