Echo Recognizes Truck Drivers During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2021 and All Year Round
It’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, and we at Echo Global Logistics would like to thank all the truck drivers across the country for their hard work and dedication. As the pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the transportation and logistics industry, we sincerely appreciate you for your unwavering commitment to keeping America moving during these challenging times. Because of your efforts, individuals and businesses are able to get the items they need, whether that’s household goods, medical supplies, or construction materials, as well as countless other products.
Echo strives to be a dependable partner to truck drivers. We work to build lasting relationships with our carriers, and our shipment specialists are available 24/7/365, making sure live support is always a phone call away. We recognize how critical truck drivers are to our business. In fact, you’re the reason why we’re able to transport over 16,000 shipments a day for our clients all over the country. Because of this, we’re always working to enhance your experience as our carrier partner.
To help simplify transportation management, we offer our carriers access to EchoDrive®, our proprietary web portal and mobile app that gives users real-time access to search, bid, book, manage, track, and get paid on freight hauled for Echo. The platform's load management tool and document upload capabilities streamline operations, keep dispatchers organized, and help drivers get back on the road faster.
Truck drivers can also join EchoDrive Preferred, our rewards program for our carriers. As a member, you can get access to an array of benefits ranging from early freight access and enhanced payment terms to discounts on SiriusXM subscriptions, a variety of carrier solutions from KeepTruckin, guaranteed parking from TruckPark, truck leases, fuel, maintenance, and more.
As a leading third-party logistics provider, we at Echo are strong supporters of the trucking community. That’s why earlier this year we proudly sponsored Highway to Hope, a virtual benefit concert organized by the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury puts them out of work. The virtual concert featured country music legend Wynonna Judd as well as other country music artists. Proceeds from the concert went directly to support truckers who need assistance.
We at Echo know that your job can be demanding as you work diligently to transport goods safely and securely, while also handling other responsibilities like managing busy schedules, adapting to changing industry regulations, and navigating heavy traffic. You sacrifice time at home with loved ones so businesses can keep operating and people can get the things they want and need. We cannot thank you enough for all that you do.
During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week and every day of the year, we at Echo respect and commend you for your outstanding work and commitment.
From all of us at Echo, THANK YOU.
