FleetOwner's top 10 Five Good Things blogs of 2022

Dec. 29, 2022
Five Good Things was relaunched after a hiatus this year, every week bringing readers the latest good news in trucking. Here are the top 10 Five Good Things blogs of 2022.

The beginning of 2022 saw the end of FleetOwner's Five Good Things blog—and in autumn, its rebirth as every week we bring uplifting trucking industry news to our readers. Five Good Things was launched in March 2020 at the inception of the COVID-19 pandemic to shine some light on some otherwise dark times. In February, the blog's creator, former FleetOwner Digital Editor Catharine Conway, left us for new horizons, but we decided to restart the blog in September because there is always cause to celebrate in trucking. No matter what economic headwinds people face, in an industry as full of charity and goodwill as this, there will never be a dearth of good news.

Here's a look at the top 10 editions of Five Good Things in 2022.

Five Good Things: Giving thanks to veterans and drivers who served

It’s a good idea to give thanks every day—and we’re into November now, the month specially set aside to do so. Veterans Day in the U.S. and Remembrance Day in Canada are both on Nov. 11, in addition to Thanksgiving Day on Nov. 24. There's a lot coming up in trucking around Turkey Day and heading into the holiday season, so with this Five Good Things, we honor veterans in the industry, on the front lines, and back in their homes. To our heroes, FleetOwner salutes you and says thanks.

Five Good Things: Trucking's 2022 holiday season of giving

It's that time of year where people pause and reflect on the past 12 months, as well as looking forward to what 2023 might bring us. Like every year, trucking delivered more than goods, but cheer and goodwill to those in need. We look at what trucking companies are doing to help others this holiday season, and we round up examples of the industry's charity throughout all of 2022.

Five good things in trucking: Driver saves trooper, hauling help to Florida

Fall is here, the leaves are changing, Halloween decorations are up, and trucking continues to keep America stocked. As the busy shipping season commences (Christmas is just 72 days away), let’s take a look at some of the good things the trucking industry and its people are doing.

Five good things in trucking: Driver makes his violin sing, healthier eating on the road

The calendar says there's a little more than a week until Halloween, and already fleets and families are going full-bore into the holidays. But let's slow down—it's Friday and only a month until Thanksgiving, after all—and take stock of a lot of good that's being done by trucking for America. Here, we shine a spotlight on a trucker who has picked up the violin, a New York state carrier that helped build an all-inclusive playground, a dietary intervention program for drivers, and more.

Five good things that happened in trucking this week—Feb. 25

All good things must come to an end—and so today will be the last edition of Five Good Things. Over the last two years, the trucking industry has gone above and beyond for its businesses, its communities, and the country. Making sure families had enough to eat, kids had supplies for their first day of school, and that truck drivers had enough PPE, food, and other essentials to help move the nation’s economy forward were just a few of the thousands of good things I’ve witnessed over the last 24 months.
