The 35th Annual National Truck Driver Appreciation Week runs Sept. 10-16, providing an opportunity to give special recognition to the more than 3.5 million truck drivers who safely and professionally deliver America’s critical goods to communities from coast to coast.


Thousands of trucking companies, manufacturers, producers and industry suppliers are acknowledging the contributions of truck drivers by hosting cookouts, doing giveaways, honoring safety achievements, announcing new incentive programs, and inviting friends and family to participate in the festivities.

“Truck drivers are the ones who move our country forward, and they deserve to be celebrated by their companies, customers, neighbors, families and friends,” said American Trucking Associations President Chris Spear. “We invite all Americans to join us in thanking these hardworking men and women who supply our communities.”
