MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — FedEx Corp. is sending 138 drivers to the National Truck Driving Championships.
The drivers from 45 states representing FedEx operating companies will compete in Pittsburgh Aug. 12-16.
Each FedEx driver earned the right to compete in the NTDC by winning at state-level truck driving championships.
The American Trucking Associations sponsors the NTDC, which is designed to recognize industry leadership in safety and to promote professionalism among truck drivers.
In total, the drivers FedEx is sending have safely driven more than 180 million miles during their careers, enough to circle the globe nearly 7,275 times.
