BEHIND

THE WHEEL

Here at AXE Trailers, we know trucker drivers are the backbone of America. From the clothes on our backs to the machinery required for building your home, it’s all delivered by a trucker. This job is not easy and requires an extensive amount of hard work and dedication. We want every trucker out there to know your sacrifice and commitment does not go unnoticed.

 

When planning our 2022 Calendar, we decided to highlight these individuals and give them the gratitude they have long deserved. From the boy who grew up sitting on the passenger seat of a semi, to the man who realized his trucking dream in his adult-life. The small town, one-truck business owner, to the CEO of a global corporation - each story has inspired us.

 

Watch 12 of our clients over the next 12 months share their stories and take us on their “day in the life.”

 

Thank you, truck drivers. The world would look very different without you.
