3SIX5 Logistics is proud to launch a new effort, aimed at getting more truck drivers involved in the fight to eliminate human trafficking activity from the U.S. transportation industry; an effort dubbed the “Man to Man Campaign.”
Since the inception of Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) in 2009, more truckers and trucking companies are getting involved in the work to end human trafficking. An industry training program, designed specifically for truckers and truck-stop employees, is at the core of TAT’s work.
All of our drivers are trained to be prepared while driving, nationally. So far, more than 453,000 people have completed the program and 3SIX5 Logistics is proud to do our part, with our national team of drivers, in the fight against human trafficking.
What’s more, lawmakers are recognizing the value of the trucking industry, in the fight against human trafficking. Ohio, Arkansas, Texas, Washington and Kansas now use TAT training as part of the curriculum for licensing either entry-level or all commercial drivers in their states. 3SIX5 Logistics believes the core of our integrity is possible through participation of this humane initiative.
This crime can take place at any location, but it is not uncommon at truck stops and welcome centers, which can be isolated from the broader community and serve transient customers, according to the Polaris Project, which works to eradicate modern slavery. These secluded locations also make it difficult for victims to escape. That’s where truckers can help.
