Truck driving is a thrilling job that allows those in the industry the chance to pilot the vehicles they love and experience the beauty of Australia on the road. However, as supply chains have increased demand over the past few years, it’s Aussie truck drivers that have shouldered that brutal load.

The video explores ways to make new connections on the road, and how to kick start vulnerable conversations so drivers aren’t left behind and forgotten by those in their social circles.
