Until the COVID-19 pandemic, many were unaware of just how essential trucking is to America. Through organizing critical supply changes, the inbound flow of materials, and inventory management of finished goods, MHC and trucking professionals across the country worked tirelessly to ensure safe deliveries during this critical time.
Each year, Women in Trucking hosts an annual photo contest to help raise awareness of the importance of trucking for workers across America. This year’s participants demonstrated this need featuring the message “I AM ESSENTIAL.” Select winners will advance to a panel of judges who will determine which participants receive a feature in the Redefining the Road magazine and special recognition at the Women in Trucking conference this November.
Tara Stewart, an MHC service apprentice, embodies the essential worker message in her photo submission while working on a truck. Stewart said that joining MHC has provided her with better benefits and more opportunities to advance. Down the road, she has her sights set on becoming a lead technician.
“As an essential worker, you’re constantly needed,” Stewart said. “In this industry, there are rarely quiet moments. There is always work to do. The communication in our Service department is great, and we all work well together to get the job done right the first time.”
Help Stewart show how essential she is by voting HERE, now until July 16.
