National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a time to pause and reflect on the importance of truck drivers in keeping the country moving. Our everyday lives depend on them, especially their crucial role during the COVID-19 pandemic. Truck drivers transport food, clothing, electronics, medical supplies, construction materials, and just about everything else that we need. Without truck drivers, our world would come to a grinding halt. A truck driver is someone who performs a job that requires commitment, professionalism, safety awareness, and plenty of sacrifice that includes working long periods away from home and family. So next time you see a truck driver, say thank you.
