Cargo Transporters’ own Derrick Whittle has been named a finalist for the ATA Road Team. American Trucking Associations has named 32 professional truck drivers as finalists in the selection process to become Captains on the 2015-2016 America’s Road Team.
“The professional drivers selected as finalists are great industry ambassadors,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “These professionals all have impressive driving records, share a passion for safety and are engaged in their communities. We are honored to have them participate in this prestigious selection process and I look forward to meeting them in January.”
America’s Road Team, a group of professional truck drivers with superior safety records, was created in 1986 to represent the trucking industry and is sponsored by Volvo Trucks.
The 32 professional truck drivers now move on to the final round of the selection process, which will be held January 11-14 in Arlington. A panel of industry officials and trucking news media will judge the contestants on their knowledge of the trucking industry, dedication to safety, ability to communicate the industry’s messages and overall safe driving record.
