Great American Trucking Show 2014

TMAF Launches High 5 and Show Your Pride at GATS 2014

Thanks to everyone who joined us in Dallas, TX for the Great American Trucking Show where TMAF officially launched its “High 5 and Show Your Pride” campaign!

High 5 and Show Your Pride is an ongoing effort within TMAF to have trucking professionals give a small donation of five dollars to TMAF to show they are proud to be trucking professionals. TMAF also introduced the “Trucking Ambassador’s Pledge.” Many trucking professionals signed their names to the pledge and made a commitment to be safe, responsible and proud members of the trucking industry.

TMAF member companies were showing their support with brand new signage at their booths, and the Love’s No. 38 NASCAR featuring the TMAF logo was even on hand!

The Trucking Ambassador’s Pledge was also introduced as part of the High 5 and Show Your Pride campaign. Many attendees at GATS showed their commitment to building a better image for the trucking industry by becoming ambassadors for an industry that keeps America moving:
