Strasbourg, France – UTA, a leading provider of fuel and service cards in Europe, is donating thousands of protective face masks to TRED UNION truck drivers in France through its We Care for You initiative as part of Edenred Group’s More Than Ever relief plan.

Christian Wittmer, UTA’s Country Manager in France, says: "When determining our partner for our We Care for You initiative in France, we sought a transportation provider at a human scale yet with a broad coverage, and one sharing UTA’s values of respect, solidarity and passion for the transportation industry. From our first meeting with TRED UNION, it was clear we held a similar vision.”

Joël Vigneron, President of TRED UNION, states: “As a key player in the French economy, the road transport sector was an indispensable link during the health crisis to ensure the delivery of consumer goods. With the donation of face masks for our drivers UTA salutes their commit-ment.”
