Pomp's Builds Coalition to Fight Trafficking

April 8, 2024

Pomp’s Tire Service Inc. is continuing its support of Truckers Against Trafficking, most recently hosting a half-day summit in its hometown of Green Bay, Wis., to bring other industry stakeholders together with law enforcement and government agencies to close loopholes to traffickers.

Truckers Against Trafficking, a nonprofit organization, calls these events “coalition builds,” with hopes that a group of company leaders and local officials will leverage their networks to combat human trafficking.

Pomp’s coordinated its first coalition build on March 12th in Green Bay alongside Schneider National Inc., Kwik Trip, the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association and the Wisconsin State Patrol.

The event was held on the campus of Schneider’s corporate headquarters.

The event included information on human trafficking prevention and awareness training, along with training resources for the trucking, truck stop, bus and energy industries. Law enforcement participated in a panel, and there was a survivor presentation.

Truckers Against Trafficking has held more than 80 coalition builds across the U.S. and Canada since 2012.

Pomp’s has become an active supporter of Truckers Against Trafficking in recent years. The commercial tire dealership has added the organization’s safety message and logo to vehicles in its fleet, and in 2023 the company hosted a public education Truckers Against Trafficking event at one of its locations in Denver, Colo.
