“Reaching our goal of putting 100 TMAF-branded trailer wraps on the road in one year was a major achievement, and we could not have done it without the generosity and enthusiasm of these trucking companies and individuals,” Burch added. “Each of these moving billboards sends an important message about our industry – and we owe a special thanks to Holland and Load One for putting 20 and 14 trailer wraps, respectively, on the highways.”
TMAF first announced its trailer decal wrap program in July 2015, calling it a major education initiative to inform the motoring public on the trucking industry’s benefits and mission. With seven million trucking professionals working nationwide, the full trailer decal wraps provide an opportunity for the motoring public to learn not only about the industry’s contribution to America’s economy, but how important trucking is to their everyday lives. Each of these ‘moving billboards’ is seen by as many as 16 million people per city. TMAF’s goal is to put another 200 wraps on the road by March 2017.
Available to members of the trucking industry are 53-foot trailer wraps, tank truck wraps, and 28-foot pup wraps. To order a wrap today, contact TMAF@trucking.org.
