Volvo Trucks extends sponsorship of America’s Road Team for 2024 

Volvo Trucks North America announced that it will once again serve as sponsor of the America’s Road Team public outreach program in 2024.

Created by the ATA in 1986, America’s Road Team navigates across the nation annually to embody the dedication, teamwork, and paramount role of America’s 3.6 million professional truck drivers in propelling the nation’s economy forward while enhancing the quality of life for all. Volvo Trucks has sponsored since 2002. 

Every two years, a select group of professional drivers is nominated to lead America’s Road Team as captains. This group is recognized for their exceptional driving skills, commitment to safety advocacy, and superior driving records, collectively accounting for millions of accident-free miles, the organization says. This team educates students, community groups, lawmakers, and government officials on the importance of road safety, as well as the essentiality and sustainability of the trucking industry. 

In support of the 2024 America’s Road Team campaign, Volvo Trucks will continue to provide a fully loaded Volvo VNL 760. Early next year, Volvo Trucks says it will extend its appreciation to the America’s Road Team captains by hosting them at the Volvo Trucks Customer Center in Dublin, Virginia. The event will be highlighted by the truck handover ceremony.
