SIMCOE, Ont. – TST Truckload Express has donated a 53-ft. trailer to KRTS Transportation Specialists Inc. and Fanshawe College, Simcoe Campus.
The trailer, which is used by Kim Richardson’s group of Training Professionals, promotes a number of industry stakeholders including the Ontario Trucking Association, the Professional Truck Driver Institute, the Power To Drive program, as well as Fanshawe College.
The trailer also features the college’s motto “Community Driven…Student Focused” along with photos of successful Fanshawe graduates in their school environment.
“We have experienced the value of investing in entry level Professional Drivers,” said Tom Philips, vice-president and manager of operations at TST Truckload. “We have successfully hired, placed and retained 27 new operators in the Power To Drive program.”
The Power To Drive program is a partnership between Arrow Truck Sales, KRTS Transportation Specialists Inc. and TST Truckload who were honoured with the 2005 Industries “Program of the Year Award” during National Transportation Week.
“The donation of the equipment demonstrates the unconventional thinking of the group,” said Kim Richardson, president of KRTS.
“Fanshawe wins as we’re advertising the college and its services in the community. TST Truckload wins because they advertise the Power to Drive Program. KRTS wins because we have great partners, as well as being able to offer our clients training on late model, state of the art equipment.”
