“Michelin helps promote the trucking industry as essential, safe and sustainable, so it is an honor to be recognized with the ATA ‘Good stuff’ image award,” he reports.

“We are pleased to recognize Michelin North America,” says ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “Michelin’s efforts in enhancing and promoting the positive image of the trucking industry are significant.”

“Good stuff. Trucks Bring It” is an industry-wide campaign aimed at improving the image of trucking. “By emphasizing the relevance of trucking to all aspects of American society, the image campaign presents the public with a positive, modern image of the professional driver and industry. Everything we use comes by truck. “Trucks bring It” is how the industry informs the public of its importance,” Becker says.
