Echo Celebrates Truck Drivers During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week takes place September 8-14 this year, and all of us here at Echo extend our heartfelt gratitude to the 3.5 million professional men and women who help keep our economy running by delivering everyday goods across the country.
American Trucking Associations (ATA), the largest national trade association for the trucking industry, started the annual weeklong tradition to raise public awareness and support for trucking professionals. According to ATA, 80% of U.S. communities rely on truckers to deliver goods and commodities.
As a top-rated 3PL, Echo Global Logistics relies on thousands of transportation providers of all sizes to deliver 16,000+ shipments for our clients every single day. We know that the job of a driver is anything but simple. From navigating warehouse schedules and inclement weather to adapting to complex industry regulations and changes, your commitment to safety and timely service is no small feat. We recognize the sacrifices you make to transport our food, construction materials, medical supplies, and other life essentials. Your long hours on the road and time away from loved ones don’t go unnoticed.
While National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a great way to honor professional truck drivers during this weeklong celebration, Echo appreciates your hard work year round.
From all of us at Echo, THANK YOU.
