Matchmaker’s Truck Driver Survival Kit

In recognition of our industry’s best and most hard-working truck drivers, we distributed Truck Driver Survival Kits at the recent 2012 NASTC conference.  Here’s what was inside:

  • B/C Powder: To relieve the headaches of the job
  • Band-Aid: To help you repair broken trucks
  • Brown Paper Bag: So you won’t hyperventilate while getting your truck unloaded
  • Eraser: To get rid of problems on the road
  • Gum: To get you out of sticky situations
  • Laffy Taffy: To remind you to keep your sense of humor in traffic
  • Lifesaver: To keep you from drowning in everyday problems
  • Marbles: To replace the ones you lose in this industry
  • Matches: To remind you of Matchmaker Logistics
  • Piece of String: To assist you when you’re at the end of your rope
  • Rubber Band: To remind you to be flexible
  • Sponge: To soak up the rain so you don’t have to drive in it
  • Starburst: To give you that needed burst of energy on long hauls
  • Tootsie Roll: To bring you luck while rollin’ down the highway!

It was a fun, humorous way of showing our appreciation and recognition for the service these incredible individuals provide to our industry, their employers, and the American Public!
