Make Trucking Great Again!
Rollin’ Truck Stop is dedicated to you, Drivers, and we take that part of our job seriously. This is why we started the Make Trucking Great Again Mission Initiative. Rollin' Truck Stop has covered the cost of all merchandise under the MTGA Brand, so when you buy anything with Make Trucking Great Again on it, every cent goes to fight for Driver's Rights!
Rollin’ Truck Stop and its owners, Rev and Sea Turtle, have seen first hand the debilitating regulations on drivers by the FMCSA, DOT, and state governments, all the while allowing companies, brokers, shippers, and receivers to go essentially untethered. This needs to stop!
No longer will brokers rake in 50-90% of what shippers or receivers pay for loads. No more will companies demand or manipulate Drivers to break the law, threatening the Driver’s jobs if they don’t, then leaving them helpless when they get caught. No longer will the DOT treat Drivers like criminals, relieving them, in most cases, of a month’s pay for every fine. No longer will shippers and receivers be able to delay Drivers from picking up or delivering loads for hours while the Driver goes without pay for that time.
So what is the MAKE TRUCKING GREAT AGAIN mission?
