"Now I’m a trainer and I love to see our young trainees grow and enjoying their job. The trainees appreciate the independence and responsibility the job brings."
“I grew up with this job and due to the contact with other truck drivers, I knew that I wanted to be one myself. At the moment, I’m still a ‘runner’, that’s why my goal is to have my own truck. A lot of people in my age have a negative perception of the career and that’s very sad.”
"It is nice to see our industry being celebrated and the role we have in it respected. I think it is a job that has challenges but overall I would not want to do anything else as a profession."
"Overall the job has a lot of advantages as well. One fact, which isn’t widely known is that there are several opportunities to study. Truck drivers with ambition have studying possibilities!”
“What I really appreciate about my job is the service element of delivering and making clients know we are reliable and efficient. I take great pride in providing this.”
