This year’s Driver Appreciation week is September 12 – 18. There are approximately 3.5 million men and women that are dedicated to keeping the American economy moving forward. These individuals affect our daily lives in countless ways. From keeping groceries on the shelves to delivering toys for Christmas and vital medical supplies to hospitals, their importance cannot be underestimated. Having quick and easy access to almost everything we want and need is something we often take for granted.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week highlights how critical trucking is to our nation’s economy. Whether it’s business as usual or navigating extraordinary challenges — from natural disasters to a global pandemic — truck drivers are on the front lines, delivering essential freight safely, securely and on time.
Here’s a great fun fact… Most drivers cover 2,500 miles per week. 125,000 per year. That’s a lot of driving. Thank a driver.
