We get a whole new perception about marrying a trucker after meeting with this couple.
There is nothing to be worried about if you are marrying a trucker, given you and your partner both know how to play your own role.

Even in our industry, hijacking is a serious issue. It causes nothing but a serious internal and external damage. Reputation and lives are at stake. Your company may experience revenue loss, higher insurance premiums, parts shortages, business interruptions, workers' compensation claims, and angry customers. More serious issues occur if anyone gets injured, or even killed.
We have done a survey through our Asian Trucker Driver Club page (Facebook), and we received plenty of comments to share experiences and information from drivers on this issue. Long distance haulage usually consists of a cargo truck or tanker trailer which offer more possibilities for hijacking to take place. Naturally, hijackers would target those trucks carrying valuable and expensive products.
