DESCRIPTION

Recently, we decided to compile a list of greatest trucking movies of all time. After scouring the web, having a chat about it and checking in with some movie buff sites, this is what we have come up with so far. To avoid arguments, this list is in alphabetical order but with some input from you and your mates on your preferences (and anything we might have missed), we’d be happy to re-organise this list into an ‘as voted by National Heavy Haulage fans’ list in order of popularity. So feel free to tell us your thoughts and let us know the films you’d rate as the all-time best trucking films.
