Centerline Drivers announces partnership with Truckers Against Trafficking
SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Centerline Drivers is proud to announce our official partnership with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT).
Through this partnership, our truck drivers will be trained and certified in how to combat human trafficking directly on our Centerline mobile app. We will also be building programs and initiatives for our customers and internal teams to get involved in helping with this fight.
This partnership is launching during September, Respect the Drive Month, our truck driver appreciation program that rewards and celebrates drivers for their hard work on and off the road. Sept. 1 is National Respect the Drive Day, and we hope to honor our commitment to our drivers by helping them receive this critical training.
"I'm so excited for this partnership with Truckers Against Trafficking," said Jill Quinn, president of Centerline Drivers. "I know this training is going to be a gamechanger for our drivers, customers and internal teams. It will enable us to do our part to help combat trafficking on the road."
"Centerline is well-positioned to raise awareness with their customers and drivers about the realities of human trafficking, and we commend them for taking this opportunity during driver appreciation week to do just that," stated Esther Goetsch, TAT executive director. "By celebrating drivers, amplifying the message and making training readily available through their app, we are extremely hopeful that their efforts will result in more victims being recovered and perpetrators being arrested."
At Centerline, we are committed to educating and empowering our drivers, customers and internal teams to combat human trafficking on the road.
