Meet America’s trucking industry, the backbone of our country.
Consumers across the U.S. rely on truckers to deliver their goods each day, often without a second thought as to where they came from.
It’s time that changed.
The American truck driver is responsible for transporting over 70% of total domestic tonnage each year.
On top of that, the trucking industry employs 10 million people.
We’re opening the curtains. Welcome to the life of a truck driver.
The Life of a Truck Driver
The “Our American Truckers” Series
The “Our American Truckers” YouTube series was started in part to draw attention to truck drivers across the country.
As part of the trucking industry, we appreciate our drivers and want the rest of the world to do the same.
That’s why we’re working to draw back the curtain between American truckers and the consumers that rely on them.
Our first episode featured Billy Cagle, a Wadesboro, NC truck driver for the entertainment industry.
He talked about his introduction to the trucking industry and gave us a look at what his experience in the industry means to him.
This time, for Episode 2, we spoke to Kennith Farrell, owner of KF Trucking right here in Rock Hill, South Carolina to get his take on everything trucking.
The American Trucker
Farrell spoke about how the trucking industry has changed over the years and the increasing demand for American truck drivers.
“In America, without trucks,” he says, “we don’t have a country.”
He’s right. America’s economy thrives off of the transportation industry and relies on ground transport of goods to remain in action.
Farrell speaks on the ELD mandate, in particular, giving a personal insight on how ELD regulations directly affect drivers.
Stepping into the life of a truck driver changes your outlook on certain things that may look different from the outside.
Farrell explains why ELD regulations have changed the trucking industry and affected him personally. He also takes a moment to reminisce…
“I got into it… I actually drove when I was 18 years old. I worked for a company called King Provision with my uncle delivering to Burger Kings,” he remembers.
He didn’t think it’d be his career until his brother suggested that they invest in their own truck.
The rest is history.
