You’ve heard of us before. As an organization that has worked within the trucking industry since 2009, our name is pretty familiar. For one reason or another, your company hasn’t used our free training yet. Maybe you thought it cost money. Maybe you don’t really know what human trafficking is. Perhaps you think that human trafficking only happens in third-world countries. If you’re reading this, you may still think these things. Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is here to provide free training and raise awareness of human trafficking to the trucking industry. We are teaming up with Trimble to host a free webinar to address what human trafficking is, how your employees can combat it and why it’s important to join this fight.
Here’s how one company helps staff stay up to date and in the know.
Consider the well-known adage if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. A reasonable idea, perhaps – but would modifying the maxim slightly benefit the people who rely on smartphones, mobile electronics and regularly updated software options and allow them to more successfully do their jobs?

The transportation industry is ever-changing. The vehicles we use may look similar from year to year, but the technology we rely on to move cargo and manage logistics is constantly evolving—from in-cab devices to in-office truck management software. Continuing education is crucial to keep up with shifting capabilities and best practices, let alone stay ahead of the competition.
