Experience Trucking

The trucking industry contributes to Minnesota’s quality of life in countless ways. Not only does it deliver 78 percent of the state’s freight, but it offers good paying driving and non-driving careers, stimulate the economy through local purchases, fund services through paying transportation and property taxes, and make charitable contributions to our community.

Experience Trucking is a statewide showcase designed to expose the general public to all the industry contributes and has to offer.
During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 9-15, 2018, trucking companies across Minnesota will open the doors of their offices, shops and trucks to the public for a behind the scenes look at our state’s amazing trucking industry. 

Experience Trucking is a family friendly event and a great opportunity for students and job seekers to learn about exciting career opportunities in the industry. Bring the family to a participating local trucking company to enjoy food, sit in a truck, tour the facility, explore industry careers and get an inside look at trucking and how it impacts your life on a daily basis. After all, if you got it, a truck brought it! 

Carriers, if you are interested in participating contact mta@mntruck.org
