The road transport industry is isolating, tiring and demanding.
In such a pressure filled environment mental health is usually the first thing to waver, and it doesn’t discriminate. You might be a truckie, fleet manager, auto electrician, male, female or otherwise. There is only so much the human body (and mind) can take.
Despite all this, road transport is an industry many of us have fallen in love with. So it’s vital that we look after ourselves and our transport mates so that we can keep doing what we love. Hittin’ that open road.
To help, the team at Airtec Corporation have curated a list of support resources for you to access. It might be for yourself, maybe your partner? A colleague, or friend.
We hope these avenues of support bring your comfort and acknowledgement that you are not alone, despite the seemingly empty road in front of you
