Avoid Airport Highway, New BWC State Coverage & Mud Hens Outing

1) Beginning June 7th Ohio State Highway Patrol will ticket commercial vehicles past barricades on State Route 2/Airport Highway, between Holloway and Albon Roads. Trucks follow the signs. Detour: I-475; Salisbury Road (Exit 6); Briarfield Boulevard; US 20A.

 

2) Now that the BWC is offering other states coverage for Ohio based employers there has been a lot of questions regarding how to track/report payroll.

Past TTA President & Honorary Board Member Walter (Wally) Gedeon Passes Away.

Wally Gedeon, 79, of Toledo passed away peacefully Wednesday, May 11, 2016, surrounded by his loving family at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Perrysburg. He was born in Parma, Ohio on April 30, 1937, to Walter and Ann Gedeon. He married the love of his life, Ann Bass, on August 29, 1959. Together they raised 5 beautiful children. Admiral Merchants Motor Freight brought Wally's family to Toledo in 1967.

His 50 year career took him to several companies ending in his retirement in 2008 as a co-owner of OMI Transportation, a company he started in 1991. Wally was very active in many clubs, even acting as president of the Toledo Transportation Club. Wally enjoyed his time in the transportation industry and he treasured the friendship of so many coworkers and customers.

He will be remembered for his integrity, sense of humor and willingness to mentor others. Being born and raised in Cleveland, Wally was a loyal Cleveland Browns fan to the very end, although they disappointed him year after year. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, attending many of their events and always being their biggest fan.

Wally enjoyed nothing more than time spent with his family and was a wonderful example of a husband, dad, and grandpa who was always there for them whenever he was needed. He was full of fun, generous, kind and honest and will be truly missed by all who knew him. Wally appreciated the compassionate care he received from many nurses over the course of his illness especially his hospice nurse, Colleen.

He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Ann; his sons, Steven (Jane), Michael (Debra); his daughters, Laura Langenderfer (Terence), Susan Woodward (Greg), and Barbara Doherty; brother, Raymond and sister, Laverne Sepich. He was blessed with many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Along with his parents he was preceded in death by his sister, Rosemary and brother, Bud.

Friends may visit the family on Monday, May 16, 2016, from 2:00-8:00 p.m. at Ansberg-West Funeral Home, 3000 Sylvania Ave., where a Rosary will be recited at 7:00 p.m. A funeral mass will begin at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday at Christ the King Church, 4100 Harvest Ln. Rev. William Rose Officiant. Interment will be in Resurrection Cemetery.

Those wishing to make memorial contributions are asked to consider Hospice of Northwest Ohio or the charity of the donor's choice. To send his family online condolences, please visit www.ansberg-west.com

 

At the recent Toledo Trucking Association Scholarship Award Ceremony, on May 5th, our dear friend Wally made the following statement:

"T​his has been a continual journey and I am proud of what this organization has accomplished for our community and especially for our folks coming from college and hopefully heading in the right direction for our country. I have been happy to have be​en​ a part of it and one of the originators​.​ Remember Go​d loves you all. God Speed.

- Yours Truly"

 


Women in Trucking Meeting a Success!

The Toledo Trucking Association held its January meeting last evening at Treo in Sylvania. The meeting was attended by 30+ members where Sherri Brumbaugh, President/CEO of Garner Transportation, & Kim Kaplan, President/COO of K-Limited Carrier LTD, spoke on the topic of Women in Trucking. Both women took turns sharing their passion for the trucking industry.

They both attributed their strong work ethic and vision to what their fathers had taught them from a very young age. Sherri was born into the trucking industry, while Kim was born into the mortuary business. Although they came from different backgrounds, their message was similar.

“Treat your employees very well and they will, in turn, treat your customers just as well”, was an important point from Kim’s talk. “Treating your people like they are part of your family will make them want to the best job possible.”
Another topic that was touched on was the struggle to get college graduates to fall in love with the trucking industry.

Kim also stressed that what people don’t realize is that her job is relatively simple, “It’s the front line people like her 100+ truck drivers who do all the work. They make me look good, all the time!”

A huge thank you goes out to both of these amazing women who shared their love for our trucking industry.

The trucking industry continues to improve energy and environmental efficiency even while increasing the number of miles driven.

In 2013, combination trucks consumed 95 billion fewer gallons of fuel than passenger vehicles in the U.S. and accounted for just 17 percent of the total highway transportation fuel consumed.
