CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 21, 2005) — Continental Tire North America Inc. will sponsor the “Ultimate Road Trip II,” a rolling classroom for drivers who own and operate their own trucks.
The tire maker hosted the first version in 2004, and this year the program plans to visit more than 100 truck stops across the country. The tour also will stop at four trucking trade shows. The tour will run from March 31 through Oct. 21.
The tire maker again has partnered with Arnold Transportation to educate independent truckers about managing their business through the program.
“After the resounding success of last year's program, we are very excited to be co-sponsoring a second, even better Ultimate Road Trip this year,” said Gary Nichols, national manager fleet sales for Conti.
