BUSINESS RECORD: Survey: Iowans view trucking industry positively

BUSINESS RECORD – More than 8 in 10 Iowans view the Iowa trucking industry in a positive light after learning the impact that trucking companies have on job creation, according to a new survey commissioned by the Iowa Motor Carriers Foundation and conducted by RABA Research.

Further, the survey found 66 percent of Iowans believe the trucking industry pays well, and nearly 3 in 4 Iowans support the industry’s contribution in getting fresh produce and online orders into Iowa communities.

The Iowa Motor Truck Association plans to use these findings as it launches a new industrywide “Trucking Moves Iowa Forward” image campaign later this month, the association said in a release. The survey was unveiled at the Iowa Trucking Driving Championships, a competition held at Prairie Meadows where drivers compete in various driving and safety competitions.
