Great News for the Trucking Industry
Trucking is still dominating the transportation industry with 67% of tonnage and 81% of revenue as of last count. This is great news for carriers and drivers alike! To keep the good news flowing, we found a story on TruckingInfo that we hae to pass on. It is about the "Drivers Dream Program" and we want to let all our truckers know about it so they can apply.
As reported by TruckingInfo:
"Truckload freight brokerage firm Total Quality Logistics is saying thank you to truck drivers with its new Drivers Dreams program."
"Drivers Dreams is like a make-a-wish program for truck drivers. Drivers go to www.DriversDreams.com and submit any dream, wish, or need they have. It might be a dream to take a long overdue family vacation. It might be a wish to go back to school. It might be assistance in paying bills. Any dream is acceptable."
This is really cool. Drivers will cast votes for the best dream and not only will the winner(s) receive their dream but for each dream submitted and every vote, they will donate one dollar to the St. Christopher Truckers Development & Relief Fundj up to a total of $25,000.
"The Drivers Dreams program began Monday, Aug. 27. Dream submissions will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, Sept. 22, at www.DriversDreams.com. On Sunday, Sept. 16, the 10 most compelling dreams will be posted online and visitors to the site will vote on the wishes they feel are most worthy. The winning dream will be announced on Tuesday, Sept. 25."
So get your dreams submitted and don't forget to vote for the most worthy dream. See the whole story and get all the details here: http://www.truckinginfo.com/news/news-detail.asp?news_id=77862
