National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, a week dedicated to celebrating truck drivers in the U.S. spearheaded by the American Trucking Associations, will be held Sunday, Sept. 11 through Saturday, Sept. 17.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is coordinated each year to show the country’s 3.5 million truck drivers that carriers, shippers and the rest of the industry appreciate the job they do, ATA says.
Here’s a look at some of the promotions and other efforts taking place during the week:
Trucking Moves America Forward, the industry image and education campaign, is encouraging the trucking industry and the general public to get involved by using the hashtag #ThankATruckDriver on social media during the week. The organization is celebrating drivers with a dedicated educational campaign showing truckers in three informal or amateur scenarios to show their personal and family sides outside of trucking. TMAF will also debut billboards along major roadways for the first time.
Love’s Travel Stops, throughout the month of September, is giving away 20 million My Love Rewards points, and one driver will win 500,000 points in a drawing held at the end of the month.
