Securing the everyday and essential items that make your life comfortable would be more challenging—if not impossible—without one crucial piece to the supply chain, and that is our nation’s truck drivers. Their dedication, commitment, and endurance ensure that everyone has the products they need that come from beyond what is available in their local communities, contributing greatly to the global economy. In fact, more than 80 percent of cities and communications are served exclusively by trucks. What would life be like without the millions of Americans who serve as truck drivers?
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is September 10-16, which is a time for us to recognize our nation’s professional truck drivers for all the work they do power our nation’s economy and advance supply chains. They have a large impact of some of the nation’s most relied upon industries including food and beverages, manufacturing, medical and pharmaceuticals, and retail to name a few.
