Northwest Georgia Traffic Club

For the better part of the last 75 years, the NWGTC has been a primay link within the transportation community in Northwest Georgia. Strategically located between major metropolitan areas of Chattanooga TN and Atlanta,GA, Dalton,GA is home to some of the largest floor covering manufacturing companies in the world! As a result, it is also home to many and various modes of transportation providers, both large and small. The NWGTC was started as a means of networking providers and consumers to build a stronger transportation community within the northwest Georgia area. In years past, the cities of Rome, Lafayette, Calhoun and Chattanooga have played particularly important roles in our organization. Today, the reach of the NWGTC stretches not only to the transportation community, but to the rest of the community as well.

We want to thank everyone who had a hand in helping us show our appreciation for the ESSENTIAL truck drivers during the COVID-19 pandemic last week. We in transportation know how important truck drivers are our well being and the economy as a whole but now the world is seeing just how essential these workers are. They are continuing to deliver supplies around the country with limited parking space, limited places to eat, not having the option of sheltering in place and so much more. We want to thank them and all of our sponsors who helped make our driver appreciation a success. We handed out over 200 bags filled with snacks, hand sanitizer, water and more at three locations last week as just a small token of our appreciation through this time. This was all headed up by our wonderful 2020 NWGTC President Donna Finney and board members, we are so thankful to have such a giving person be our leader through this time.

During times like these we are proud to bind together in the transportation industry. The link below exemplifies an amazing young man using his own business to make hand sanitizer for businesses and individuals in North Georgia. He was kind enough to donate some to the Northwest Georgia Transportation Club so we could pass it along to our truck drivers who are hard at work delivering necessary supplies to hospitals, gas stations and grocery stores. In times like these we are thankful to be in this industry.
