Chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion main driver be­hind truck­ers’ hard work

The Daily News Egypt - - Events -

En­sur­ing the best pos­si­ble ed­u­ca­tion for their chil­dren was the an­swer of nearly two thirds (63%) of truck drivers as the main rea­son they work, ac­cord­ing to a new study by Shell Rim­ula/Rotella heavy duty diesel en­gine oil.

The study sur­veyed 605 truck drivers to get a bet­ter in­sight into the dreams and as­pi­ra­tions of truck­ers across the world, help­ing to shine a light on the hard work they put in ev­ery day.

More­over, the study in­di­cates that when it comes to fam­ily, the ma­jor­ity of truck­ers (83%) are away from their loved ones up to one month at a time, and only 10% make it home daily.And while on the road,it’s their part­ners and chil­dren they miss the most (76%), fol­lowed by the taste of a home-cooked meal (28%).

Con­se­quently,con­sid­er­ing the long time they spend on the road,46% say they would like the chance to dec­o­rate the in­side of their cab­ins to re­mind them of home, while 33% of truck­ers be­lieve hav­ing their part­ner with them would make their jour­neys eas­ier.

“Our sur­vey find­ings high­light the hard work of truck­ers that sees them work over long pe­ri­ods and long dis­tances away from their fam­ily and com­forts of home. It is heart-warm­ing to know that what ul­ti­mately mo­ti­vates them is the same as all of us—to look af­ter loved ones. It’s this re­lent­less pur­suit of their dreams that drives us ev­ery day to cre­ate a hard work­ing en­gine oil that can help keep the truck’s en­gine in good work­ing con­di­tion,” said Chris Guer­rero, global mar­ket­ing man­ager for Shell heavy duty diesel en­gine oils.
