ATA Seeking America's Road Team 2019-2020 Captains

Every two years, the trucking industry welcomes a new group of Captains to join America’s Road Team and serve as industry ambassadors. They all have millions of accident-free miles, according to ATA.

The American Trucking Associations' nominating process has opened for professional truck drivers to serve on the 2019-2020 America's Road Team. The team originated in 1986; it is a group of elite professional truck drivers who promote the trucking industry by educating the public, media, and elected officials about the industry's safety record and importance to the U.S. economy.

"Trucking continues to see professional drivers as the most important safety factor on the road and, as such, we have the utmost respect for the millions of skilled truck drivers who serve America's economy with pride," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "For the past 32 years, America's Road Team has elevated the visibility of truck drivers and their important work in communities throughout the country, so we look forward to selecting a new group of passionate trucking advocates and welcoming them as the next generation of Captains."

Every two years, the trucking industry welcomes a new group of Captains to join America’s Road Team and serve as industry ambassadors. They all have millions of accident-free miles, according to ATA. Its members are invited to nominate professional truck drivers who exhibit strong interpersonal skills, have impressive safety records, and demonstrate a positive attitude toward the industry and their careers as professional truck drivers.

"There is a potential America's Road Team Captain at every truck terminal in the country. There are drivers with decades of experience who are anxious to get their message out to the public and tell their stories about trucking," said America's Road Team Captain Scott Harrison of K-Limited Carrier, a member of the 2017-2018 class. "Truck drivers, like me, are passionate about what we do, and we get excited about telling people about our rewarding careers and the true professionalism with which our colleagues in the industry work each day."

Nominations for the 2019-2020 class of America's Road Team are due Aug. 20, 2018.
