Happy National Trucking Week 2017!

Do you know the faces of trucking?

For National Trucking Week 2017, we wanted to recognize and show our appreciation for all of the amazing people that work in the trucking industry. The trucking industry is a bit of an unsung hero in the sense that many people don’t think about all of the parts involved in getting goods to their destination.

These are just a few of the many people who make sure the supply chain doesn’t break, who keep our economy strong, and make sure the things you need arrive on time and safely. Happy National Trucking Week to all professional Drivers and all of the support staff!

There are many people to thank for the success of today's trucking industry. If you know someone that is behind the wheel, turns a wrench, or works behind the scenes, thank them today for their dedication!
