    Post Reference letter.

    Hi everyone,
    Can someone please help me to write reference letter?
    Here it is:




    Date


    To whom it may concern,


    John Smith was employed by ABC Transport LLC as OTR truck driver from January 2011 to January 2013. For the first six month John was hauling reefer loads, and for the next eighteen month he was hauling flatbed loads. John had been to all 48 states hauling loads of different levels of difficulty.

    John was one of our best drivers, always reliable, hard-working, dedicated, trustworthy, and always punctual. We have heard many times words of appreciation from our clients and brokers that were very pleased with John’s work. Loads were always on time with no damages or shortages.

    While working with this company, John never had any accidents or moving violations. He has demonstrated the ability to work under pressure and to plan and organize successfully to meet tight deadlines.

    John was a great asset to this company and I highly recommend him for employment. Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Yours sincerely,

    There are 50 states. Perhaps you could say "every state in the continental United States."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I think "the lower 48" is a bit informal. My preference is still for "every state in (or of, no difference) the continental United States.

    Don't omit "the."
