On Monday, June 2nd, members of the UWT team made the trip down to TC Trans for the Second Driver Appreciation Day. The weather was perfect; several drivers were in attendance to enjoy the delicious breakfast hosted by Paso Del Norte,  and participate in the day’s various topics.

One of the most valuable sessions from the day was the Pre-Trip Inspection Essentials that was performed by TC Trans. It was a great session that highlighted the importance of doing simple inspections every day, both pre-trip and post-trip, as this will allow drivers to find and deal with any issues with the tractor or trailer BEFORE they become major problems.

Pre-Trip Inspection Essentials covered: key areas to inspect on the tractor, key areas to inspect on the trailer, how to fill out an inspection report, and some tricks of the trade. And as of today, the video of the pre-trip inspection session is live on UWT’s YouTube Channel!!!! Check it out below:

A huge thanks to all our drivers for participating in the events of the day! Stay tuned for more video and media related to other topics that were covered during the event. And finally, a huge thanks to TC Trans for hosting the event! Missed this one? Don’t worry: we are looking forward to holding another one this fall/winter!
