Trucking industry unites to provide hand sanitizer, masks for drivers


Ingrid Brown, a 40-year trucking veteran, says she was just “venting on social media” in mid-April about the struggles truck drivers were experiencing to find personal protective equipment, including face masks and hand sanitizer, at truck stops and other places out on the road, when she quickly discovered industry executives were paying attention and wanted to help.

Brown said she has been working with executives at International Truck, Triumph Business Capital and TriumphPay to develop a plan to help truckers.

The three companies are partnering to purchase and deliver more than $75,000 in PPE to truck drivers who are working around the clock to deliver essential goods, including medical supplies and food.
