    UPS training thousands of drivers to spot, report human trafficking- KNWA

    UPS is combatting human trafficking by partnering with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) to help teach drivers how to spot and report signs of trafficking when out on their routes, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    TAT is a Colorado-based nonprofit whose mission is to provide educational materials for trucking and related industries and to train drivers to recognize the signs of sex trafficking by teaching them whom to call, what to do and what not to do.

    UPS began started working with TAT in 2016, and in April 2017, UPS expanded the TAT pilot project to all U.S. driving operations, including delivery providers and over the road semi-tractor trailer drivers.
