The American Trucking Associations recently revealed the official 2019 Truck Driver Appreciation Week logo and thank-a-trucker toolkit.
“Every September, trucking comes together to recognize what we consider the most important profession in the country: truck drivers,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “This year, ATA is partnering with leading trucking companies, industry suppliers and state associations to salute truck drivers throughout North America, and we think the 2019 logo does a great job of telling our industry’s story to the public.”
This year, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week runs from September 8 through the 14. Trucking industry organizations honour truck drivers by hosting company barbeques, offering safety bonuses, handing out safety awards, and making other special efforts.
“National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is one of the trucking industry’s favourite weeks,” said ATA Executive Vice President of Industry Affairs Elisabeth Barna. “It’s a chance for the industry to work with the general public, policymakers, and members of the media to acknowledge truck drivers for their dedication to safety and professionalism. We encourage everyone to visit the official NTDAW website to see the variety of tools we use to spread the word about National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, such as suggested events, sample op-eds, and press releases.”
