Driver Appreciation Week is here

Driver Appreciation Week celebrates the 3.5 million professional truck drivers delivering life’s essentials across our country everyday.


National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2009 takes place this week, November 1-7.

There are over 3.5 million professional truck drivers nationwide, delivering the goods U.S. consumers need every day of the year. Logging over 432 billion miles per year, trucks delivered 10.7 billion tons of freight in 2007, or almost 70 percent of total U.S. freight. Professional truck drivers are more essential to the national economy than ever before, and they deliver their loads safely and professionally.


Here are a few low cost ideas to help celebrate with your drivers:

1)     Bring in breakfast tacos and juice for the drivers

2)     Have the driver’s truck fueled and/or washed for them before they get in

3)     Send a “Thank You” card to the driver’s home address

4)     Call individual drivers into your office and thank them personally

5)     Prepare a snack pack for each driver to take with them on the road (you can even include a thank you note inside).

6)     Give each driver a pocket version of the Bible or other motivational book to keep on their truck. 

Do something today to show your appreciation to a driver.
