Last week was National Trucking Week this year, which acknowledges the truck driving community and the effort that goes into the transportation industry and its work.

“This week is an important one for us to recognize,” Kevin Pattison, president of the TPS Group of Companies in Lively, said in a release. “Our business relies heavily on truck drivers, especially two of our divisions, our truck driving school, Northern Academy of Transportation Training, and our trucking personnel.

“Now, even more than ever, truck drivers are an integral part of our workforce. Without them, grocery stores would be empty and hospitals would lack the supplies they require.”

Brian Pattison, the general manager of the Northern Academy of Transportation Training, agreed with his brothers.

“Truck drivers are an essential service and are in very high demand,” Brian said. “That’s one of the great things about having a truck driving school, that we can not only educate and license drivers, but then on our personnel side, we can offer those drivers a new career, which is really rewarding.

“We have companies calling daily for our licensed AZ graduates, and its a good feeling knowing those drivers had a good-quality education,” adds Pattison.

For more information on getting your AZ license, or starting a career in transportation, contact the Northern Academy of Transportation Training, 705-692-9222, ext. 209.
