ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Today, American
Trucking Associations thanked the sponsors of its image and outreach programs:
Share the Road, America's Road Team and Interstate One, the federation's image
show truck.


"We at ATA are immensely grateful for the support our programs receive from
our allied community," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "Without them,
it would be impossible to do the work that we do every day to represent the
trucking industry."

America's Road Team, a national public outreach program led by a small group
of professional truck drivers who share superior driving skills, remarkable
safety records and a strong desire to spread the word about safety on the
highway, is sponsored by Volvo Trucks.

Through Share the Road, sponsored by Mack Trucks and Michelin North America
and supported by TravelCenters of America, ATA has been educating the public
how to travel safely with large trucks since 1986.

Interstate One is ATA's image truck, travelling across the country visiting
state capitals, schools and other community events, to deliver a message of
safety, sustainability and essentiality. Interstate One is supported by
TravelCenters of America, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and XRS Corp.

"These programs are tremendously important to the work we do at ATA and we
appreciate the extraordinary efforts these companies have taken to support
them," said ATA Chairman Mike Card, president of Combined Transport, Central
Point, Ore.

American Trucking Associations  is the largest national trade association for
the trucking industry. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking
associations and industry-related conferences and councils, ATA is the voice
of the industry America depends on most to move our nation's freight. Follow
ATA on Twitter or on Facebook. Good stuff. Trucks Bring It!
