Boy Scout Troop 129 Of White Rock Visits United Van Lines Santa Fe Terminal

Boy Scouts of Troop 129 of White Rock recently visited Johnson Storage and Moving for a tour of the United Van Lines Santa Fe terminal. Tom Springer, manager of the facility, graciously hosted them. The scouts learned how goods are stored, packaged, moved, both across the continent and locally, and how trucks are used to facilitate delivery of virtually everything we use. They learned the difference between gasoline-driven and diesel engines and why diesel is used in the transportation industry. They also learned about the wide variety of jobs necessary to run a successful storage and moving company. Through Springer’s discussions and attention, the scouts successfully completed Truck Transportation merit badge. This included the opportunity for sitting behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler and blowing the horn. The donuts were good, too. Johnson United Storage and Moving is at 2 Paseo De River in Santa Fe.
