Who We Are

  • Why Truck Driving Can Be A Great Second Career

    According to the American Trucking Association (ATA), there are approximately 3.5 million truck drivers in the United States, which is about 35,000 short of what is needed. There are many student driver programs that companies offer which target the younger crowd, but there is an angle to truck driving that may be appealing to older generations. The ATA has tried targeting older generations in the past with ads but found the campaign not as successful. This does not mean however, that the truck driving industry completely missed on their efforts. According to Greg Stewart, director of transportation at Kirkwood Community College who is mentioned in a great article about a husband and wife trucking couple here, truck driving can be a very successful career choice for couples, brothers, and even friends.

  • Beacon Supported The Nashville Rescue Mission

    Several times a year, Beacon partners in an outreach to help a worthwhile cause in the middle Tennessee area. On May 1, 2015, we supported the Nashville Rescue Mission. Nashville Rescue Mission’s Mission: Following God’s command to love our neighbor as ourselves, Nashville Rescue Mission seeks to help the hurting of Middle Tennessee by offering food, clothing and shelter to the homeless and recovery programs to those enslaved in life degrading problems. Our goal is to help people know the saving grace of Jesus, and through Him, gain wisdom for living, find fulfillment in life and become a positive part of the community. Beacon Transport took up donations of items that the Mission needed as they provided a ‘Wish List’. Beacon was able to contribute two complete carts full of donations. Beacon Team Members and their families volunteered at the Mission to help serve over 500 meals that night. It is always such a humbling experience to serve others and give back to the community. A huge thank you to everyone that participated!
