OTTAWA, Ont. — National Trucking Week 2007 will be rolling out September 9-15 and to help celebrate the event, the Ontario Trucking Association is offering free posters, collector cards and discount cards to carriers and suppliers. The annual event spotlights the contributions made by the 400,000 Canadian men and women who keep the countrys freight moving.
National Trucking Week serves as an ideal platform for the trucking associations to deliver important information to the community about sharing the road with a truck, said the OTA in a release. This year OTA will also be using the week to raise awareness of the enormous strides forward the trucking industry has made in lessening its impact on the environment specifically the unveiling of the 2007 model year truck which has introduced the era of the smog-free truck.
Virtually everything you will eat, wear, use at work and the business inputs into virtually every manufacturing process were delivered by a truck. The old saying if you got it, a truck brought it is as valid today as it ever was and that is a direct result of the efforts and dedication of the people of the trucking industry who make sure goods are delivered to market in a reliable, safe, environmentally sustainable and timely basis, said OTA president, David Bradley. During National Trucking Week we salute the men and women who form the backbone of the trucking industry and the lifeblood of Canadian commerce. Without them the country would literally stop.
The Ontario Trucking Association, in conjunction with the Canadian Trucking Alliance, is encouraging carriers and suppliers to take steps to mark the special week and recognize truck drivers and other industry employees.
