ALBANY, Ga. — UPS Inc. has agreed to donate a semi-tractor to Albany Technical College at the Logistics Education Center on the college’s main campus.

Through a special partnership, UPS has agreed to donate the tractor to be used to train the next generation of truck drivers at the college.



“To produce qualified CDL truck drivers for the trucking industry, operative trucks and trailers are needed to train students,” Albany Tech interim President Emmett Griswold said in a news release. “We appreciate the donation from UPS. It will be used for instructional purposes in the college’s Commercial Truck Driving program.”

In 2018, ATC implemented the Albany Transportation Academy at Albany Technical College to address workforce shortages of CDL truck drivers and diesel technicians within the trucking industry. The college has created partnerships with companies such as UPS in previous years.

UPS Inc. ranks No. 1 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America.
