Honored for Offering an All-Inclusive View into the Life of a Trucker

Louisville, Kentucky, March 21, 2024 — Joshua Giesbrecht, better known as “Trucker Josh” to his viewers, has been honored with induction to the Howes Hall of Fame for his outstanding contributions to the trucking industry. The announcement was officially made at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show. Josh was a guest at the Howes Products Booth, meeting fellow drivers and sharing stories about his career and passion project: publicly documenting his life as a trucker.

Since 2011, Trucker Josh has been self-recording videos, chronicling his life for all to see. His aim was to curb negative stereotypes about who truckers are and how they live. To do this, Josh decided to offer a rare, intimate view of what it’s like to be a trucker, from behind the wheel to inside his own home.

“Josh takes great pride in boosting the perception of truckers and the industry as a whole, and does it in a very unique, personal way,” said Rob Howes, president of Howes Products. “His faithful following is proof of his success in helping to grow awareness and respect for truckers. We are thrilled to celebrate his achievements with his induction to the Howes Hall of Fame.”

Through his popular YouTube channel, Josh’s tireless commitment to sharing his daily experiences has led to him becoming a prominent figure in the world of trucking and beyond. From sharing tips and advice for fellow truckers to showcasing beautiful scenery from his treks across Canada and the U.S., Josh has managed to find a way to bridge the gap between drivers and non-drivers alike. He has even inspired some to become truckers themselves.

“Trucking is in my blood and had been my livelihood for many years,” said Giesbrecht. “But I wanted to show people what life as a trucker was really like. What’s grown from that undertaking amazes even me. Sharing my time on the road and at home with my family along with all my ups and downs contributed to making my Vlogs what they are today. This acknowledgement further proves that offering a transparent view into what I do is actually making a positive impact on how people see truckers. It’s really exciting to be recognized by Howes.”

The courageous disclosure of his personal life along with his in-depth and entertaining look into life behind the wheel has captivated audiences world-wide and allows Josh to spread positivity in and out of the trucking community. Josh has become a reliable source of information, support, and camaraderie for an extremely diverse viewership. His induction into the Hall of Fame serves as a testament to his dedication, perseverance, and unwavering spirit.
