Goodaye to all NRFA members and prospective members. I trust you had a good Christmas and wish you all a TRUCKING Good 2022. We have grown this year, our stand at the truckshow went well and with the new TIV on the road soon, I hope to attend events and fly the NRFA flag and will continue to do my best for the industry, the NRFA and the TIV for the next four or five years. If you want to help and be a part of something, join the NRFA and help us to help you. Till next year, Safe Travelling, Rod Hannifey NRFA President.
To all who read this blog, thanks for your interest. To those in the road transport industry, I would ask you to do one positive thing this new year. To those outside, I seek some understanding and even, perhaps empathy for those who live on the road, so you can have everything you do have. In the UK they have t-shirts, “Without trucks, you would be cold, naked and hungry ! “
There are some fantastic people in this industry, as there are in others, but like in all other industries and jobs, the few who do the wrong thing, not only make it hard for the others, they often undermine the good work done. Please when you are on the road next, look at the trucks. They are everywhere and most often, when simply doing the right thing, you will not see them at all, unless you look, but as soon as one does something wrong, you will take note.
So to be fair, you have to balance all those you don’t normally see simply doing their job, with the odd one who makes a mistake, stuffs up or simply, is one of those we would rather not be on the road either. To all a TRUCKING Goood New Year. Cheers and Safe Travelling, Rod Hannifey.
