OLD FORGE, NY — On May 2, 2024, the Northeastern Loggers’ Association presented David Moody with its Outstanding Forest Products Trucking Operator Award for 2023 at the organization’s annual Loggers’ Banquet in Burlington, Vermont.

Based in Loudon, NH, David Moody has hauled wood as an owner-operator for the last 35 years throughout New Hampshire and southern Maine. Like many trucking companies, David’s company, Moody Trucking, has grown and contracted over time. Whether he had a fleet of 12 or just one, he has always focused exclusively on hauling for the forest products industry.

Over the years, David has been an advocate for the industry, attending rallies supporting pro-market legislation. He is known to call his local senator or representative to advocate for the industry, and his service and hard work is recognized by those who know and work with him throughout his region of operation.
