This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation (NTDAW) Week! A week long celebration established by the American Trucking Association (ATA) to honour the 3.5 million professional truck drivers for their hard work and dedication. From September 10th-16th, make sure to show some appreciation for all that they do!
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
Trucking Moves America Forward is an organization supported by the ATA that focuses on spreading a positive light on the trucking industry and all that it contributes to the economy. They do this by educating the public through the media, advertisements, and countless campaigns. In honour of National Truck Driving Week, take a look at this video they released below:
Luckily, Trucking Moves America Forward and the ATA aren’t the only ones who celebrate National Truck Driving Week. Here’s a list of other companies that are showing their appreciation!
