Moving product from Point A to Point B is critical to helping the country thrive. Without American roadways, your product doesn’t get from your warehouse dock into the hands of American businesses and your customers. Ground transportation continues to be an efficient and reliable way to transport your product and merchandise. Yet, realities exist along those roads that demand our attention. Young women and children are being forced into prostitution. Innocent victims are regularly moved from point-to-point just like your product and merchandise. These victims are relying on you. With one simple decision, you can help put an end to domestic sex trafficking along America’s roadways.
Stand with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) and help us fight sex trafficking on behalf of the entire trucking industry. TAT works to educate and equip those who travel along truck routes to identify and report suspected sex trafficking through an anonymous national hotline.
As a shipper (i.e., a company that hires carriers), you most likely have a transportation and logistics department that either moves the majority of your company’s product through its own private fleet, or through the carriers you hire, or both. As the customer, your company is truly in a position to use your influence to help make your carriers aware of this problem and how they can become part of the solution. Become a TAT Shipping Partner and join the fight against human trafficking. *We also invite 3PL’s to encourage the carriers they work with to become TAT Trained.
Encourage your trucking companies to become TAT Trained. Your simple act makes the roads safer and helps recover innocent victims. Companies that join the TAT Shipping Partners Program and advocate TAT training for their core ground transportation carriers have a major impact in saving lives by promoting the program throughout the industry.
TAT provides all the resources free of charge. We’ll also send you a Shipping Partner badge for your website to let others know that you are a part of this program. When truckers are TAT trained, they make more reports to the hotline, more victims are recovered and more pimps prosecuted. Working together, we can close loopholes to traffickers who exploit victims and legitimate businesses along our nation’s roadways. In order to sign up and receive your toolkit, click here.

Shipping Partners Program Best Practices:
Thanks to individuals just like you, the trucking industry has shown it cares about recovering lives along American roadways. Before TAT existed, only sporadic calls were made to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) from members of the trucking industry. Since TAT’s inception, however, calls have skyrocketed! In fact, according to Nicole Moler, the director of the NHTRC, “Truckers are now one of the most motivated and well-organized industry groups working on this issue, and their reports have led to countless arrests and recoveries of victims across the country.”
