Did you know it’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week?
September 10-16, 2017 has been designated by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) as National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (#NTDAW), when America takes the time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs.
Recent numbers indicate there are currently 3.5 million professional drivers in the United States. This annual celebration was started in 1988 by ATA, the largest national trade association for the trucking industry, and recognizes the significant contributions of America’s truck drivers.
US Cargo Control specializes in cargo control products, and we work very closely with the trucking and transportation industry. We strive to understand the needs of this industry in order to offer the best solutions and best products. We talk to truck drivers every day, and appreciate their needs and their challenges.
What does this mean to US Cargo Control?
We enjoy the relationships we’ve built with truck drivers over the years, and Truck Driver Appreciation Week is important to us.
“Truck drivers roll coast to coast, oftentimes 24/7, to get us the goods we need and want, despite sacrificing time with families and potentially dangerous driving conditions,” said Todd Kuennen, president of US Cargo Control. “This is an opportunity for us to show gratitude for the dedication of these hardworking men and women, and raise awareness and appreciation of the critical role they play in our daily lives.”
