Hauling Hope Event

Truckers and the pandemic

In the media and in the mouth of politicians and spokespersons - I can only speak for German and American ones, but I have a feeling it is not much better elsewhere - the hero talk is always about nurses, sometimes law enforcement and delivery drivers. While I strongly believe they need that attention and appreciation more than ever, Truckers disappear from the picture.

In this pandemic, we praise the immune system, the heart and the liver to do their job, but we tend to forget that those organs cannot do a thing without the blood, the red blood cells, the lifeblood of our society.

At the beginning of the pandemic they were mentioned in Germany on a sidenote as the Sunday drive ban was lifted to ensure the supply of essentials. Oh fine, more work, less family reunion planning, just keep the trucks rolling. And hell, they keep their heads down and do their job.

If they decide not to, we don't get masks, we don't get vaccines, we don't get hospital supplies, so even the nurses can't do much. Let alone, the shelves in stores are empty, no toilet paper, no noodles, no coffee, tobacco or deliveries from internet stores.

Many truckers still have to do loading and unloading by themselves, many have the clock on "Rest time" while they actually move pallets, which is illegal, but at times the only way to get the job done. They cannot avoid contact with people once they transact business, so they are exposed more than others. Home office trucking only works in a simulator.

In the general public, truckers here in Germany have the same reputation as politicians, pretty bad. They are "ticking time bombs", "obstacles on the road", driven by people who failed to learn a "decent" profession. The common public has no idea that our truckers actually are highly trained specialists who spent a lot of studying time and money just to qualify for the job. They sacrifice family life, they have a huge responsibility and they are still the weak link in the chain that everybody picks on when things go wrong. Stress, harsh dead lines, fatigue,and fierce competition is the explosive cocktail they have to deal with in our days, day in, day out. Trucking romantic is a thing of the far past.

In all this. I SALUTE SCS for taking a stand for these so little appreciated members of our community. Without them, the world comes to a screetching halt. Let us all honor their work and commitment by participating in this great event.

Truckers, we know you are the true heroes of these days, and we love you!

So I agree with 10.000 %, but to make the deliveries it would be nice if we could find some, since yesterday it was impossible to find a cargo in the game, even after sleeping several times.

Not all cities have the cargo, so travelling to the cities is sometimes required.

The way it looks to me (being on ATS and coffee), the trailers are not meant to pop up in every city in masses. We got to complete 7 deliveries until a week into February, so you might as well just simulate the way you normally would and pick up the opportunity when it arises. No anxieties, even if you do it only on ATS or only on ETS, you still get the reward for both sims, so relax, you got time. I did it only on ATS, got both, so you know why I'm saying it.

The trailers typically are in cities with Sell Goods facilities (ATS). The biggest pack of Vaccines I have seen on multiple stops in Salt Lake city, like 5 to 7 offers. I think I've done 2 or 3 out of SLC alone. Maybe you should give it, umm, a shot. :mrgreen:

I've done both long- and short haul and I completed today.

Hi,
I tried to haul a World Of Trucks Hauling Hope event delivery but never mind what chasy, truck or cargo I take, the game says my truck chasy is too long and the only thing I can do is refuse the cargo. Can anyone help me with this? Is this a bug or there's something I do wrong?

It sounds like you may be using map mods. Mods that change the map can cause major issues with WOT jobs and that is one of the errors that can occur.

@Madkine

Yes but the same by selecting to go looking in another city it marks me no cargo does not match ...

I logged out of my WOT account and logged in again and there I had shipments again.
