Driver Appreciation Week recognizes the drivers who move our economy forward.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week was celebrated September 13-19, 2020. This year was particularly significant given the essential role truck drivers have played during the COVID-19 pandemic. TransForce honored drivers through special features on social media, giveaways at local branches, and a fun contest that put a spotlight on safety.
Branch staff nominate drivers who make an impact.
We asked our employees to nominate their MVDs – most valuable drivers! After reviewing all submissions, five winners were chosen to receive a $50 gift card and be featured on TransForce’s social media pages throughout Driver Appreciation Week. Congratulations to Antonio, Robert, Susan, Natasha, and Wesley!
Driver giveaways have a focus on safety.
As a small token of appreciation, TransForce branches nationwide offered giveaways that are especially fitting for 2020: hand sanitizer and masks. Staff even offered contact-free pickup to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Facebook contest promotes drivers’ best safety tips.
We asked drivers to share how they stay safe on the road. Using the hashtag #TransForceSafe to enter, we received dozens of photos and great safety reminders. The top five photos were chosen and those drivers earned a $50 gift card. See below for the winners and visit the TransForce Facebook page to see the rest of our entries!
