Indy first ‘Hardest Working’ city

Freightliner Trucks named the 2015 Work Truck Show’s host city, Indianapolis, Ind., as its first “Hardest Working City” honoree March 4, with the announcement coming at the show itself.

The new program is designed to promote cities in both the U.S. and Canada that are investing in infrastructure and economic growth to revitalize communities and the role that vocational trucks play in those efforts.

As part of the campaign, Freightliner will host celebratory events in each honoree city, including coffee and donut visits to high-profile jobsites as well as larger celebrations at Freightliner dealers. The first such celebration was held during the Work Truck Show at Stoops Freightliner in Indianapolis on March 6, while coffee and donuts were delivered to selected jobsites around the city that morning.
