Mack Donates Anthem Truck to the American Trucking Association (ATA) to assist in their veteran recruitment efforts.
The cab, wrapped top to bottom in camouflage, attracts veterans to look at careers in the trucking industry. In addition, recruiting events at military bases, schools, and career fairs feature the truck.
Recently, in a press release, ATA President and CEO Chris Spear spoke on behalf of Mack’s latest donation.
“ATA is thrilled that Mack Trucks has again stepped up on behalf of our industry. This new Mack Anthem demonstrates the thousands of great trucking jobs available to military veterans,” he stated. “As a military dad, this partnership demonstrates how industries showcase themselves to individuals who served the nation. Lastly, I thank Mack Trucks for giving us the opportunity to expand our efforts on this issue.”
In addition, the Mack Anthem offers excellent safety features and incredible comfort, making it the ideal cab for any driver.
Also, “It’s equipped with a Mack MP®8HE-415SE engine with 415 horsepower and 1,660 lb.-ft. of torque and Mack mDRIVE™ automated manual transmission.” Therefore, drivers focus on the road ahead instead of constantly shifting gears.
Also, along with efforts throughout the trucking industry, studies show that vets assist in solving the driver shortage.
“Mack proudly demonstrates our support of veterans through this donation. We look forward to working with ATA to shine a light on trucking opportunities,” said Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks senior vice president of North American Sales and Marketing. “Overall, trucking offers a great career option, especially for veterans, many of whom have experience driving large trucks.”
