During a time when so many of us stayed home to stay safe, thousands of #TruckerHeroes around the world kept their wheels turning. These men and women continued to drive trucks, pilot planes, sail ships, and load cargo in order to keep our supply chains running.
Follow our heroes and their stories on our LinkedIn page and by using #TruckerHeroes.
During Covid-19, supply chain workers faced a big challenge. How could they continue to transport goods across international borders safely during a pandemic?
Hear from Truck Drivers directly as they describe the challenges they faced and the solutions they discovered.
Meet Victoria & Konstantin
“30 hour traffic jams and no help still did not deter us from falling back in love with why we started this...our love to travel.“
“It was too important to just stay home. We felt like we needed to do our part in helping“
“Understanding the different regulations accross countries helped me deal with all the daily uncertainties.“
Meet Andzelika and Damian
“Food preparation, a portable shower and lots of patience got us through this!“
“A good driver will cope with each route, and each route is my favorite, because truck driving is my passion and gives great pleasure – also in times of Covid-19“
“I never get tired of the road! The use of medical masks and sanitary facilities helped me through the pandemic.”
“The truck is my second home! As an experienced driver, mastering any route and any weather is no problem. Deep briefings within the team on the new regulations and safety precautions helped us through the crisis.”
“Master of the helm, expert navigator, and quarantine superstar ”
“To keep going, I had to get creative: I used a stove and a can of water to create hot water, and kept driving my routes.”
"A good friend moved me to become a trucker. I already had the urge as a child. Today I tell myself that I can explore the world."
"I decided to be a TruckerHero to put myself into a society to change something very big in the whole world."
