Trucking Companies Work to Fight Human Trafficking
A Tolleson, Arizona-based truck driver has put together a notable design on a Kenworth T680 to help promote a worthy cause – bringing awareness to the problem of human trafficking. This issue has been one that the trucking industry has worked to bring attention to in the past. Inland Kenworth, the driver who put together this effort, has received support from the industry.
Truckers Against Trafficking, Kenworth Truck Co., and Ritchie Bros. are just a few of the organizations that have supported this project. The “Everyday Heroes” truck will make its debut at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council meeting. The meeting will be held in Nashville, Tennessee between February 27-March 2 at the FlowBelow booth. After it is displayed at a number of auctions, the truck will be auctioned off in late June.
Inland estimates the value of the truck to be $157,000. The proceeds from the sale will also go toward stopping trafficking. Namely, the Truckers Against Trafficking.
