National Truck Driver Appreciation Week September 16-22

truck-driver-imageAlong with the American Trucking Associations and the entire trucking industry, TransForce honors and acknowledges the millions of professional truck drivers that deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day.

According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), there are over 3.1 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering life’s essentials. These professional men and women behind the wheel log close to 398 billion miles each year and in 2011 delivered 67 percent of the U.S. freight tonnage – or over 9.2 billion tons of freight. 80 percent of U.S. communities depend solely on the trucking industry.  Professional truck drivers keep this country moving.

“We are extremely proud of the 2,000 drivers that we have working for us. Our drivers are dedicated to DOT compliance and safe driving,” says Dan Horvath, Director of Compliance.

During the week Sept. 16-22, TransForce drivers will receive driver appreciation packages and have the opportunity to participate in cookouts, giveaways, and other events to show our appreciation.

We take this week to recognize the significant contributions of our professional truck drivers. The efficiency and safety that these drivers guarantee allow businesses and American citizens to confidently ship goods across state lines and throughout America.
