Truck drivers are the backbone of our nation. On the road, away from their families, they meet and overcome challenges daily. This video is our tribute to the great men and women who keep America running. Their sacrifices are not lost on us.
CFI embraces its responsibility to support our communities and the families that make up those communities. We are proud of our commitment and ties to military veterans, our local first responders, and crusade for women within the transportation industry.
CFI created its Truckloads of Treasures annual giving event 30 years ago in dedication to the children across our country that rely on others to do the right things. Through our educational and giving opportunities, CFI leverages its people to encourage, promote and provide for those underserved families.
