August 16, 2022 - Assured Telematics (ATI) participated in Toledo Transportation Club’s (TTC) recent golf event and sponsored three holes, all in a dedicated effort next to Thyssenkrupp to help raise college scholarship funds for students. With 129 golfers signed up across various transportation related industries around the Toledo area, as well as transportation companies from Detroit and Chicago, the Toledo Transportation Club donated one $4,000 scholarship and two $1,000 scholarships to students focused on extracurricular activities, community involvement, academic performance and in-course application.

The Toledo Transportation Club was officially organized in 1905, welcoming transportation industry members from diverse professional backgrounds, including but not limited to trucking, railroad, airlines, and traffic management. According to Ben Allen, President of the Toledo Transportation Club and responsible for Fleet Maintenance at ThyssenKrupp, “Despite the extreme heat, the event was a major success and we’re proud to say that over the past few years we’ve given out $6,000 a year split between three well deserving students.’’ As explained by Frank Pellitta, CEO at Assured Telematics, “Participating in this valuable event further underscores our mutual goal to drive meaningful change and positive impact.”
