Epes Transport System, Inc. donated a 53-foot truck trailer to Guilford Technical Community College on Friday, Feb. 6. The trailer will be used for curriculum classes in GTCC’s Global Logistics Technology program and for continuing education classes such as forklift training at the college’s Donald W. Cameron Campus located in northwest Guilford County.  The trailer will provide hands-on training for GTCC students, enabling them to understand the operation of loading and unloading trucks at a warehouse.  It also will help instructors demonstrate the safety procedures used in this work environment to protect workers and equipment.

“This trailer is just a small  contribution to help students achieve their dreams and goals,” said Paul Huffman, senior vice president maintenance, Epes Transport System Inc. “We look forward to partnering with GTCC in other areas and appreciate their support of the business community.”
