The charity enjoys the strong backing from the UK transport and logistics industry, and the active involvement of its patron. Iveco became involved with Transaid in 2005 and is one of its founding members. As well as the donation of the vehicles listed below, Iveco, in its role as main supporter of the Scottish Transport News Rewards Breakfast (the largest Commercial Vehicle industry event in Scotland), has been instrumental in raising funds via a raffle each year which has raised in excess of £40,000. In 2006 Iveco donated a EuroTrakker tipper to Sri Lanka to help re-build the country following the devastating Tsunami. In 2008 three Daily vans were delivered to the Ghana Women’s Project in Accra to help establish a viable market trading business. In 2011 Iveco donated a Stralis 4x2 to the National Institute of Transport in Dar Es Salam, Tanzania. The Stralis is used as a driver training vehicle to help trainers train commercial vehicle drivers to achieve internationally recognised standards and thereby reduce the number of road deaths on the roads of sub-Saharan Africa.
