RECHTIEN INTERNATIONAL TRUCKS SALUTES THE 3.5 MILLION PROFESSIONAL TRUCK DRIVERS
The National Truck Driver Appreciation week was established by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) and has been a tradition since 1988.
September 11th kicked off this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week to celebrate the trucking industry’s 3.5 million professional truck drivers who safely move the nation’s most essential products.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week provides the trucking industry an opportunity to formally recognize the efforts of professional truck drivers. State trucking associations, industry suppliers and motor carriers of all sizes are set to host appreciation events for the men and women who safely deliver 70.1% of the country’s total freight tonnage.
More than 80% of U.S. communities rely exclusively on truck drivers to deliver their goods and commodities – granting the nation’s most remote populations access to modern conveniences.
Thank you for all your hard work and sacrifice throughout the year to Move America Forward!
