UPS drivers in Mason and Thurston counties will undergo training to help spot human trafficking.
On January 13th, UPS announced its commitment to provide every UPS driver in the U.S. with the knowledge needed to spot the signs of trafficking and what to do next should they see such activity. (This includes the UPS package car drivers who make residential deliveries, as well as other UPS drivers in the U.S.)
Training is set to begin in April and will reach 100% of the U.S. driver workforce by the end of 2020 which equates to 130,000 drivers.
UPS says the training concept was developed in coordination with Truckers Against Trafficking. UPS semi freight drivers underwent the same training in 2017.
