The industry image group is also asking for the industry’s help in naming the mascot.

Name submissions for the new mascot can be submitted via email to

Trucking Moves America Forward Chairman Kevin Burch unveiled the group’s newest member Thursday – an unnamed mascot. The group is asking the industry for name suggestions for a voting contest to be held next month.

Submissions will be accepted for about a month TMAF says, and a voting contest will be held afterward to determine the mascot’s ultimate name.

TMAF Chairman Kevin Burch said in the press conference he got the idea for a mascot when he attended the National Truck Driving Championships in Indianapolis, where there was a large duck mascot that garnered the attention of children and families. “I thought, ‘Trucking Moves America Forward needs a mascot,'” he said. “We need to get an attention grabber.”

Elisabeth Barna, TMAF executive committee member, said the mascot will tour the country “to tell the story of the trucking industry.”
