Operational efficiency, industry awareness, public policy, recruitment and retention - common issues for an uncommon industry. The challenges faced by truckload demand solutions developed from a unique perspective...yours. TCA makes that happen.
The trucking industry is dedicated to providing professional, safe, and courteous truck drivers. Because you share the road with truck drivers, you are in the best position to assist us in identifying those truck drivers who are truly Highway Angels.
Highway Angel recognition is awarded for a driver's "good deeds", ranging from simple acts of kindness, such as fixing a flat tire, to heroic life-saving efforts, such as pulling someone from a burning vehicle and administering CPR. When you know of, witness, or experience an exceptional act of kindness or courtesy by a truck driver, please take the time to fill out and submit this Highway Angel nomination form.
Not only will the truck drivers you nominate receive your recognition of superior performance, but TCA will also reward them as a Highway Angel by sending them a lapel pin, clothing patch and personalized certificate of appreciation. The drivers' companies will also receive a personalized certificate of recognition that they can hang in their terminals or offices for everyone to see.
In addition to special recognition by TCA and the driver's company, the Highway Angel program seeks to promote greater public recognition of all Angels through the placement of select Angel stories in industry trade press and on social media.
As the program continues to focus on improving the public's image of truck driving as a profession, and providing a program that recognizes drivers and helps individual drivers feel better about themselves and their professions, companies use this program as a source of increasing morale and self image among their driving force. The Highway Angel program has become part of their recruitment and retention programs.
Lindsay Lawler is currently representing TCA's Highway Angel program at select TravelCenters of America/Petro Stopping Centers truck stops across America through September 25, 2014. The unique tour is the first attempt of its kind to help restore the perception of professional truck drivers as “Knights of the Highway". See the complete list of tour dates and locations here.
