Truckers Against Trafficking Partnership
ICSA is partnering with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) to encourage truckers to get TAT-trained and become certified in recognizing and reporting suspected human trafficking.
Human trafficking is a crime where a trafficker exploits a child or adult through force, fraud and/or coercion to provide sex or labor to someone, with the trafficker pocketing the money earned. Because traffickers are often moving their victims to the next buyers, truck drivers have proven to be essential front-line workers with this crime – the eyes and ears of our highways – helping law enforcement in the arrest of perpetrators and the recovery of victims.
To date, close to one million members of the trucking industry in the United States have taken the free, short training provided by Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT), learning how to recognize and report human trafficking when they see it in the course of their regular jobs, and they’ve been registered as TAT Trained.
