Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Truck Driver Appreciation Week is September 11-17th. Within this industry, there are more than 3.5 million men and women that deliver goods securely and on time, as well as keep our roadways safe.

Many businesses heavily rely on truck drivers to complete or distribute orders and shipments of materials or goods. This is a time to honor one of the nation's most vital and demanding jobs.

This national campaign came about in the early '90s to show appreciation to those in this demanding field.
