National Road Carriers has partnered with New Zealand Trucking Media to sponsor the Little Trucker Down Under magazine.

Justin Tighe-Umbers, chief executive officer at National Road Carriers, said creating early awareness of the transport industry with young New Zealanders is a great way to introduce trucking as a career.

“Truck drivers are critical to ensuring the New Zealand economy grows and prospers. Little Trucker is a positive way to connect the industry with younger children,” he said.

“NRC looks forward to working with New Zealand Trucking Media to help introduce Little Trucker readers to some of our members who we know will be more than happy to ‘show and tell’ their trucks with up-and-coming young truckers.”

Shannon Williams, editor of Little Trucker Down Under, said it was great to have the support of respected organisations like NRC.

“Having the transport sector get behind Little Trucker shows just how important our young readers are to the future of the industry,” she said.

“We can’t wait for members from National Road Carriers to get involved and be a part of the stories our Little Trucker reporters share.”

Matt Smith, New Zealand Trucking Media advertising manager, added: “It’s fantastic to have National Road Carriers as a sponsor of Little Trucker Down Under.

“Their support along with all the other fantastic supporters of the magazine means more copies of Little Trucker Down Under are reaching the next generation of the transport industry workforce.”
