The Tennessee Trucking Foundation has committed to contributing $50,000 over the next five years to a campaign that “fits seamlessly with its mission.”
Tennessee Trucking Foundation board members voted to support Trucking Moves America Forward, an educational initiative that not only furthers the understanding of the trucking industry but also ignites a passion in others for the work it does, said Tommy Hodges, TTF president.
“Our nation’s economy runs on freight hauled by the dedicated and hard-working men and women who travel our highways and roads delivering America’s goods,” he said. “We are pleased that our contribution will help spread the critical message of safety and highlight how essential trucking is to our way of life.”
Trucking Moves America Forward, which launched in March 2014 at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, is an industry-wide image and education initiative informing policymakers and the public about the benefits of trucking to build the necessary political and grassroots support to strengthen and grow the industry.
