Thank You

Many of those that aren’t associated or familiar with the transportation industry may not sit back and realize how everything comes together for Thanksgiving. The food, decorations and clothes we pack up to go visit our loved ones. This Thanksgiving, when you sit down with your family, take a moment to look around at everything on the table. It was all transported by professional drivers. Thanksgiving is made possible by truck drivers.

In fact, truck drivers haul nearly 10 billion tons of goods and materials to cities and towns across the nation every year. They deserve our respect not only during the holidays, but year-round. Plus, the day after Thanksgiving–better known as Black Friday–is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. This is another great opportunity to thank a driver for transporting goods this busy time of year.

Many drivers will be on the road this Thanksgiving Day, and we are so appreciative for their sacrifice. Join us and take a moment to appreciate drivers for their dedication. They keep our economy afloat and keep this beautiful country of ours moving forward.
