SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Speaking to truck dealers from the US and Canada, American Truck Dealers chairman Eric Jorgensen urged them to get out and educate their communities on the important role they serve.

“We’re all in this business together,” he said during an address at the ATD Convention & Expo. “We all have a responsibility to move trucking forward.”

He pointed out American truck dealers provide equipment that moves more than 70% of all the freight tonnage produced annually in the US, while employing more than 8.7 million in the country.

“We’re part of an industry that not only puts people behind a big wheel, but also propels the nation forward,” he said. “And our industry keeps the nation moving.”
