Without Trucks, Jimmy's after-school snack would still be in the cow! ... the bread would still be wheat, the grape jam would still be hanging on the vine. An after-school snack or a nation's economy. Without trucks, they're a jigsaw puzzle with no way to put the pieces together. Iowa communities depend on trucks for their daily existence. Throughout the state, IOWA MOTOR trucks move three out of every four tons of freight, 90% of all farm crops and livestock products, 70% of the mail. Enjoy your snack, Jimmy! There's more where that came from ... by truck! An essential service you'll depend on for the rest of your life!
