Professional West Virginia truck drivers will test their driving skills and knowledge of the trucking industry during the West Virginia Trucking Association's annual Truck Driving Championship. Forty-seven drivers are to compete in the Truck Driving Championship. The companies that will be participating in the competition are XPO Logistics, Walmart Transportation, ABF Freight System, UPS Freight, FedEx, Pitt Ohio, Winjean Trucking and Pilot Thomas Logistics. The event will be held this Saturday, June 17th, at the Winjean Trucking Company, located at 183 Airport Road in Buckhannon, WV.

The best time to experience the driving competition will be between 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The Truck Driving Championships (TDC) is designed to promote safety in the trucking industry. Each driver has a chance to demonstrate his or her driving skill and knowledge of the trucking industry through a series of tests. The drivers are given a written examination, pre-trip inspection test and finally the most visible - the field test.

Drivers will compete for a chance to go to the American Trucking Associations' National Truck Driving Championship taking place in Orlando, FL, August 9 – 12, 2017.

The Association will also be presenting annual safety awards, which include the "Driver of the Year" and the "State Police Safety Award" tributes, at a dinner following the competition.

The West Virginia Trucking Association (“WVTA”) has announced that the exclusive WVTA Buyers’ Guide (the “Guide”) — the premier resource of relevant products and services for trucking professionals — is now available at the WVTA website at www.wvtrucking.com.

WVTA partnered with Overland Park, Kan.-based Strategic Value Media, a leading nationwide provider of print and digital media solutions for national, state and local trade and membership associations, to produce the Guide. WVTA is proud to provide its members with this useful and easily accessible year-round resource.

“This comprehensive Guide offers access to a vast network of industry suppliers,” said Jan Vineyard, President of WVTA. “We are very pleased with the ne work SVM has done with this Guide, which we anticipate will now greatly assist industry professionals in making educated purchasing decisions throughout the year. The response to this Guide by the industry has been nothing short of outstanding.”

The West Virginia Trucking Association, in conjunction with the  American Trucking Associations’ Share the Road highway safety program, released winter driving tips for motorists taking to the nation’s highways this holiday season.

“Everyone is busy this holiday season running last minute errands for our family celebrations or driving to faraway states to visit grandparents or friends, but the trucking industry wants all motorists to make safety their number one priority,” said West Virginia Trucking Association President, Jan Vineyard. “It’s easy to get caught up in the holiday spirit and forget to focus on safety, which is why we’re happy to provide these tips from professional truck drivers.”

More than 103 million Americans are expected to travel this holiday season, according to AAA. A higher volume of vehicles traveling side by side on roads in December and early January creates an increased need for adherence to safe-driving habits, especially when coupled with adverse driving conditions. Drivers should be well-aware of the uptick in congestion and plan trips accordingly.
