TMAF Joins 500 Groups to Urge Lawmakers to:#BuildForTomorrow

Trucking Moves America Forward (TMAF), the industry-wide education and image movement, is advocating lawmakers to invest in better and safer roads and bridges as part of its affiliation with the seventh annual Infrastructure Week, May 13-20, 2019.

“With 3.5 million truck drivers on our highways every day working to deliver America’s goods, it’s imperative that we have safe and modern roads,” said Kevin Burch, co-chairman of TMAF and president of Jet Express, Inc. “A strong infrastructure network is critical to the success of the trucking industry and all of America. Our lives, businesses and economy depend on it. Our leaders must address the nation’s infrastructure gap and provide the proper funding to #BuildforTomorrow because, as the industry’s latest television commercial shows, life won’t wait.”

To help promote Infrastructure Week and its message, TMAF published an editorial in the publication Morning Consult titled, “The Time to #BuildForTomorrow is Now.” The op-ed can be found here. TMAF also published a blog post on their blog page through Medium, which can be found here.

Throughout Infrastructure Week, TMAF will be sharing messages about how strong infrastructure is critical to the success of the industry on its other social media properties, which include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

In addition, TMAF provided social media content for the industry to use throughout Infrastructure Week, including shareable images, in their monthly social media content calendar, which is available to members of the trucking industry.
