ABF Freight: America's Road Team
Sponsored by the American Trucking Associations, America's Road Team comprises professional truck drivers chosen for their excellent safety records and outstanding communication skills. The members are known as Road Team Captains.
While maintaining their jobs as full-time professional drivers, America's Road Team Captains travel the country speaking on behalf of the trucking industry to civic organizations and the news media. The Captains address transportation and safety issues in any forum at which they can reach the motoring public to share safe driving tips and offer advice on how to safely share the road with tractor-trailers.
The Road Team Captains also advocate safety to those within the industry at terminals and truck stops. They speak with fellow drivers, driver training students and corporate safety officers. They also have the opportunity to present trucking and safety issues before our public officials, at the national, state and local levels.
“These drivers are among the best of the many ABF Freight professional drivers who safely protect and deliver the goods entrusted to us on a daily basis—providing unmatched value-added transportation solutions for our customers. The reputation ABF Freight enjoys as a trusted transportation partner and a safety leader will be well represented with this group,” said ABF Freight President Tim Thorne.
