National Truck Driver Appreciation Week for 2020 is upon us!
Fleets and others in the industry are rolling out the red carpet Sept. 13-19 to show truck drivers appreciation for all they do, which is vital in any year but has been magnified even more in 2020 due to the industry’s response as essential workers to the coronavirus pandemic. Be sure to check out our Trucking’s Frontline Heroes project, also released this week, which pays tribute to drivers and others who went above and beyond the call of duty to keep critical food supplies, products, medicines and medical equipment moving during the crisis.
Check back on this page all week to see the different ways drivers are being recognized. Use the hashtag #NTDAW2020 on social media.
The men and women behind the wheel have always been the heroes of our Chairman Randy Guillot. In honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2020, Chairman Guillot wrote this letter to thank them for all they do. #ThankATrucker #NTDAW2020 pic.twitter.com/2kgvP0sPoC
