National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, held September 14-20, is a chance to extend a special ‘thank you’ for all their hard work.

These 3.5 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe. They log close to 398 billion miles each year and in 2012 delivered 68.5 percent of the U.S. freight tonnage – or over 9.4 billion tons of freight.

80 percent of U.S.communities depends solely on the trucking industry. Professional truck drivers keep this country moving.

ATA began celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week in 1988 in an effort to honor those hard working men and women who deliver life’s essentials, every day. Follow National Truck Driver Appreciation Week on Twitter and Facebook.
