Other Programs & Partnerships
EPA’s SmartWay program helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking, and freight transportation efficiency.
Did you know?
- The U.S. transportation system moves a daily average of over 51 million tons of freight or about 57 tons of freight per capita
- E-Commerce sales increased 20-fold between 2000 and 2019
- Experts project that by 2050, global freight transport emissions will surpass those from passenger vehicles.
This level of activity comes with some global impacts that may compel corporations to seek opportunities to assess and streamline shipping operations so they can use less fuel and generate less pollution. SmartWay, a voluntary public-private program, offers assistance to address environmental trends and goals.
Human trafficking is, sadly, surpassing drug trafficking at America's southern border, but it doesn't end there. Trafficked children, women and men are "distributed" to every state in the nation. Truck drivers travel the same highways that human traffickers do, providing the perfect opportunity to be the eyes and ears out there.
Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) exists to educate, equip, empower and mobilize the trucking industry to combat human trafficking as part of their regular jobs. Before TAT existed, only sporadic tips were being reported by the trucking industry, but now they have made over 1371 calls to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, generating 425 cases of sex trafficking involving 744 victims, 249 of those minors, making them one of the fastest growing demographic of callers nationwide.
OTA has partnered with TAT to expand awareness and help grow the network of truck drivers who are trained to report on instances of human trafficking. Training your team is easy and can have a huge impact on this growing crime.
TRAIN YOUR TEAM
- Have your team watch the full 26-minute video.
- Make sure each team member has a TAT wallet card. If you need some, contact email@example.com or the OTA office at 503.513.0005, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Once those steps are complete, go to the TAT website, click on “TAT Trained”, then “Register”, “Company”, and fill out the information for the number of employees that have a wallet card and watched the video.
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day celebrates the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 3,700 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad. OTA has become more involved in this effort in Oregon by becoming an official supporter. By ordering through OTA, every two wreaths sponsored has a third added to the count for no extra cost. While OTA staff has been on-site at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland for the wreath laying ceremony, any location can benefit from wreaths sponsored through OTA.
Thanks to all of our members who have supported WAA through the years. Watch for more details on how you can participate this year!
