July 24, 2023

Bridgestone Americas Inc. recently participated in a coalition build event hosted by Truckers Against Trafficking.

Truckers Against Trafficking was formed in 2009 to educate, empower and mobilize members of the trucking industry to combat human trafficking.

The day-long event - which also included the Pilot Co. and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation - took place at Bridgestone Americas' headquarters in Nashville, Tenn.

“As the eyes and ears of America’s roadways, our industry has a unique and important role to play in spotting and stopping human trafficking,” says Josh Holland, vice president, Dealer Development and Mobility Solutions Deployment, Commercial, Bridgestone Americas.

“We are proud to have supported the important work of Truckers Against Trafficking for many years and this coalition build marks a critical step forward as we work together in public-private partnership to drive awareness that reaches our communities beyond the transportation sector.”
