August 31, 2017 – The Saskatchewan Trucking Association (STA) is elated about its ongoing involvement in Canada’s National Trucking Week celebrations. National Trucking Week evolved out of the need to show the importance of the trucking industry as it was felt that as an important fiber in the country’s economic blanket, it was not recognized enough. Executive Director of the STA, Susan Ewart said: “The STA wholeheartedly supports this weeklong initiative as it cannot be stressed enough how important the truck transport industry is to the economy”.
The trucking industry ensures sustainability and efficiency of our livelihood in a way no other industry can. Drivers are tasked with the responsibility of transporting goods for long hours, sometimes in inclement weather for extended periods. This is no easy feat, but it is done with resilience, pride, and passion.
This year the STA will celebrate drivers at two events from 11 am to 2 pm by way of a barbeque; the first event will be at Langham Weigh Scale (SK-16 – 17Km W of Saskatoon) on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. The second event will be on Thursday, September 14, 2017, at Regina North Weigh Scale (Hwy 11 – 4Km NW of Regina). The events have been sponsored by SGI, SGI Canada and Cervus Equipment Peterbilt who partnered with us to offer their support.
The Saskatchewan Trucking Association takes pride in recognizing and showing gratitude to the industrious, dedicated and loyal men and women who remain committed to the task of uplifting our country. They continuously sacrifice their comfort and family time so that we can have all that we need to thrive as a society by transporting freight to the right place, at the right time and in excellent condition.
As proactive trusted advisors, the STA is a knowledgeable membership association that represents the collective interests of the truck transport industry through authentic advocacy and education, representing the trucking industry in Saskatchewan since 1937.
The STA cannot thank you enough for all you have done and look forward to celebrating a plethora of milestones with you. We salute you our highly-valued drivers!
