The National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) runs September 9-15.
Trucking companies, industry suppliers, state associations, and shippers recognize the country’s 3.5 million professional truck drivers throughout the week by hosting events, celebrating driver safety achievements, and educating local communities about the important role truck drivers play in delivering critical goods.
According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.5 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe.
The official 2018 NTDAW logo is available for industry affiliates seeking to promote the week. ATA also released a selection of sample documents intended to enhance the week through various media campaigns, legislative items, and events.
This year, ATA’s NTDAW store will come equipped with a selection of items to buy for professional truck drivers or to show support for the work they do. These items, featuring a backpack cooler and high-quality thermos, allow industry professionals and supporters from the general public to show appreciation for America’s drivers throughout the year.
The store will take orders until September 1 to ensure customers receive their merchandise before the start of the celebration. Interested customers can also co-brand merchandise with company logos alongside the official 2018 NTDAW logo.
