2021 Freightliner Cascadia wrapped in Truckers Against Trafficking imagery spotlights industry’s fight against human trafficking

Swift Transportation recently unveiled its wrapped truck honoring Truckers Against Trafficking.

The new 2021 wrapped Freightliner Cascadia will be a living representation of Swift’s partnership with the non-profit organization Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT). The wrap displays Swift’s and TAT logos and reads “Everyday Heroes Needed.” It also provides a number to call to report suspicious activity.

Professional Swift drivers are selected to drive the wrapped trucks based on their personal ties to the truck’s theme.

“We are grateful for Truckers Against Trafficking and the important work they do,” said Kevin Quast, Swift Transportation’s chief administrative officer. “Our partnership with TAT has been part of our company for many years, and we are proud to say that we have provided TAT training for thousands of professional drivers. We stand united with TAT and others who fight against the evil of human trafficking.”

Swift partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking to help educate drivers on how to become everyday heroes by recognizing and reporting trafficking. New drivers at Swift learn about TAT during the Driver Qualification program and can take additional training on the subject if they wish.

“We are thrilled and grateful to see Swift create this beautiful tractor wrap in an effort to raise awareness about how the trucking industry can combat human trafficking,” said Kendis Paris, TAT’s executive director. “It’s just one more way trucking continues to lead the way across all modes of transportation in the fight against this heinous crime.”
