Truck Driver Appreciation Week

DAW is an annual event dedicated to recognizing the hard work and significant contributions of truck drivers to the economy and everyday life. Celebrated during the second week of September, this week-long observance is organized by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) and various industry partners.

During Truck Driver Appreciation Week, the vital role that truck drivers play in maintaining the supply chain and ensuring the delivery of goods across the country is highlighted. With over 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the United States, these individuals are responsible for transporting everything from food and medical supplies to electronics and building materials.

We are excited to extend an invitation for you to participate in this meaningful event. This week is dedicated to recognizing the tireless efforts of truck drivers who keep our supply chains moving and our economy thriving.
