| Paul LeBlanc is a Motor Vehicle Body Repairer who works with Universal Truck and Trailer in Dieppe, NB
As an employer of 57 Red Seal tradespeople across our Transportation and Logistics group – and many more planning to earn their Red Seal designations – we celebrate the expertise, knowledge, and vital contributions they bring to our businesses every day.
We recently asked several of our current and aspiring Red Seal employees to share their best pieces of advice, thoughts, or favorite parts of the job. Check out their responses here!
September is Transportation Month
As a result of COVID-19, the world has a heightened awareness of transportation and the demand to keep supply chains open. Truck drivers, mariners, railroaders, and their support teams worked diligently to ensure shelves were stocked throughout the pandemic. Even through the worst, our teams stepped up and showed up. By road, rail, and sea, they always delivered.
We thank the employees who took every precaution to ensure their communities and customers remained safe. We thank their families and the friends who supported them.
Through September, we observe several transportation events. In recognition of National Trucking Week (Sept. 5-11), Red Seal Appreciation (Sept. 12-17), Rail Safety Week (Sept. 20-26), and World Maritime Day (Sept. 30), we encourage you to reflect on the role transportation plays in your life, and all the people who keep the wheels turning.
