Freight Exchange of North America (F/X) recently announced they were selected to participate in the third annual TCA Trucker’s Weight Loss Showdown. The showdown challenges employees at five national carriers to participate in the 10-week long Lean for Life program co-sponsored by TCA and Lindora Clinic, a clinical weight management provider. Four F/X staff members and eight drivers will participate in the program, which begins May 27 and stresses a low-carb, moderate protein, low-fat diet; exercise, nutrition education; and lifestyle changes.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
