National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 13-19, 2015, is when America takes the time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.4 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe.
These professional men and women log close to 421 billion miles each year. In 2013, trucking professionals delivered 69.1 percent of the U.S. freight tonnage, equivalent to 9.7 billion tons of freight. 80 percent of U.S. communities depend solely on the trucking industry for the delivery of goods. Professional truck drivers keep America moving forward.
Celebrated this year the week of September 13-19, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week will feature celebrations hosted by motor carriers, shippers and other trucking-related industries, as well as with events hosted by American Trucking Association (ATA), its state affiliates and America’s Road Team Captains.
Thank you to all our truckers out there!!
