Road team in the US

America’s Road Team is a national public outreach program led by a small group of professional truck drivers who share superior driving skills, remarkable safety records and a strong desire to spread the word about safety on the highway.

American Trucking Associations (ATA), the voice of the trucking industry, created America’s Road Team in 1986 to reach out to the trucking industry and the motoring public.

Road Team Captains take a few days each month to meet with the motoring public, the news media, students, transportation officials and government leaders to demonstrate the trucking industry’s commitment to safety.

Every two years, ATA searches for professional truck drivers, both men and women, who are willing to take time away from the cab of the truck to serve as a Captain. As Road Team Captains, these professional drivers take a few days each month to meet with the motoring public, the news media, students, transportation officials and government leaders to demonstrate the trucking industry’s commitment to safety and promote trucking as a sustainable and essential part of the US economy. In addition, Road Team Captains appear at events ranging from driver safety meetings to National Truck Driving Championships to reinforce the importance of safety and professionalism in our industry.

The Volvo Group has supported the America’s Road Team for more than a decade.
