While 18-wheelers are functional and excellent means of product transportation, they can also serve another purpose — advertising. With all that space on the bed of the truck, businesses figure “Why not use that space to our advantage?”. Transportation advertising isn’t a new innovation. Drive around any major city and you’ll see taxi cabs with advertisements on the roof, cars wrapped in a brand, and skywriters carrying a branded banner. 18-wheelers serve the exact same purpose. However, the brand isn’t always a major company, it could be the trucking company itself!
