Sharkey Transportation and The Trucking Fitness Company Partner To Help Drivers Fight Back
Sharkey Transportation, a motor carrier that specializes in reefers, flatbeds, and air-ride vans, and The Trucking Fitness Company, today announced the availability of a wellness initiative that will help Sharkey drivers live a healthier life while on the road!
The partnership between Sharkey and The Trucking Fitness Company allows drivers to have the resources and guidance to learn how to exercise in or just outside of their truck, eat healthy on the road, and stay accountable to the changes they are making.
“I have spoken to a lot of trucking companies who have been around for multiple generations, just like Sharkey, but most of those companies aren’t continuously looking for new ways to help their drivers live a better life on the road like Sharkey does” said Mark Manera, The Trucking Fitness Company CEO.
As time goes on, more trucking companies are looking for ways to improve driver retention and provide better benefits for their drivers on the road.
Chris Griggs, Sharkey Transportation Recruiting Manager said “Our 50th Anniversary really started the conversation of what else we could do to support our drivers’ overall health. We already offer 100% premium-free health insurance and 24/7 telemedicine services. How else could we encourage driver wellness on and off the road? Partnering with The Trucking Fitness Company for customizable exercises, stretches, and nutrition advice was the answer. With experienced drivers and potential new drivers focusing more on their health, now is the perfect time to strengthen our overall wellness program. Our upcoming Driver Appreciation Week celebration will be the ideal opportunity to introduce The Trucking Fitness Company program with workout video demos, raffles for exercise bands, and more. We look forward to providing this great resource at a corporate discount and it’s an innovative way for us to show appreciation for our drivers.”
The Trucking Fitness Company is taking a proactive approach at solving the drivers’ health problem by partnering with trucking companies to establish an industry leading wellness program for zero cost to the trucking company’s bottom line.
Mark Manera, The Trucking Fitness Company’s CEO, said “We believe that the drivers’ health epidemic is only going to be solved if it’s backed by the whole industry, and I think trucking companies can play a big part in this solution,”
The partnership between Sharkey Transportation and The Trucking Fitness Company is one step closer to The Trucking Fitness Company’s mission to change the way the trucking industry thinks of drivers’ health.
