Social Media in Today’s Trucking
With social media continuing to connect the industry, we wanted to repost this content that was first published in 2014.
Are you a driver, operations manager, or safety director of a trucking company? One thing you all likely have in common is the use of social media. The only difference is how you use it. The beauty of social media is that it brings people of the trucking industry together. You can easily join a conversation and voice your opinion. You can get information on hot industry topics. You can even read touching, personal stories of drivers doing good deeds. There are no limits to the amount of information you can share and access through social media.
Keep Appreciating Truck Drivers
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is behind us, and we had a fun time thanking drivers in person and on social media! For me personally, it is always my favorite week of the year at C.H. Robinson. In my almost 10 years at C.H. Robinson, I’ve almost always been focused on carrier relationships. Which is why I think it’s important to show my appreciation for drivers not only for one week a year, but all year long. My dad is a truck driver, so I know firsthand the hard work he dedicates to his job every day.
Carrier Spotlight of the Month: Pope Trucking
Next month is the one year anniversary of our “Carrier Spotlight of the Month” series on The Road, so we thought we’d mark the milestone by reposting our first featured carrier.
Carriers play an important role in the logistics industry, and that’s why we’re putting the spotlight on some of these dynamic companies each month. This month’s featured carrier is Pope Trucking, a privately-held, family-run flatbed carrier headquartered in Pearson, GA.
It’s truck driver appreciation week September 14 – 18. Sometimes the best way to thank someone is to understand what he or she is going through. To help more people understand what it’s like to be a truck driver, we’ve compiled nine funny, quirky, and outrageous GIFs we think show exactly what life on the road is like.
Drive Your Professional Growth at the Women in Trucking Conference
This blog was originally published on The Road in February 2015. With the first annual women in trucking conference coming up, we thought we would rerun this blog post.
As a board member of the Women in Trucking (WIT) organization, I could not be more thrilled for our first annual conference, “Accelerate!” The conference and expo will feature a variety of educational sessions, interactive discussions, and endless networking opportunities.
