Volvo Trucks North America will continue as the sole sponsor of America’s Road Team in 2011. A trucking industry safety outreach program, America’s Road Team uses professional drivers with outstanding driving records to deliver messages about highway safety and the essentiality of trucking.

America’s Road Team is a program founded by the American Trucking Associations (ATA). Members of the team are known as Captains, many of whom may have millions of miles of accident-free driving in their careers. They undergo a rigorous selection process to become part of the Road Team.

The Captains are frequently referred to as ambassadors for the US trucking industry. Each year, they speak to hundreds of groups of lawmakers, government officials, students, regulators, and other truck drivers. Their presentations include safe driving tips and highway safety information, much based upon their own experiences, as well as the importance of trucking to the American economy.

The Captains often use a Volvo VN tractor, donated by Volvo Trucks, to pull a trailer extensively outfitted as a mobile presentation facility, allowing them to more effectively deliver their messages wherever they go.
