Echo Supports St. Christopher Trucker Relief Fund in Honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2022
September 11-17 is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW), and we at Echo Global Logistics would like to extend our gratitude to professional truck drivers from across the nation for their hard work and commitment to delivering the goods and resources people need. During this week, Americans in all 50 states will be celebrating the 3.6 million men and women who keep our economy moving with their unwavering commitment to delivering freight safely, securely, and on time while keeping our highways safe.
Echo strives to be a trusted partner to truck drivers, providing both our carrier technology and our shipment experts, who are available 24/7/365, making sure live support is just a phone call away. This mutual trust and support have led to our strong and long-lasting relationship with our carrier network. We recognize how critical truck drivers are to our business. You’re the reason we can transport over 16,000 shipments a day for our clients all over the country.
Our appreciation and support are not limited to National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. Here at Echo, we strive to create a lasting partnership with our drivers by providing transportation solutions that simplify the lives of those in our truck driver community. The EchoDrive web portal and mobile app provide carriers with more control over their shipment management and gives users real-time access to search, bid, book, manage, track, and get paid – all in one app. In conjunction, we offer EchoDrive Preferred, a rewards program that provides drivers with an array of benefits, including early freight access, guaranteed parking, and discounts on truck leases, fuel, maintenance, and more, to enhance the experience of hauling loads with Echo.
This year, Echo is proud to have donated to the St. Christopher Trucker Relief Fund (SCF) to give back to the drivers that have given so much for us. The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund is a truck driver charity that helps over-the-road and regional semi-truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury has caused them to be out of work.
We at Echo know that your job as a truck driver can be demanding as you work diligently to transport goods safely and securely while also handling other responsibilities like adapting to changing industry regulations, navigating heavy traffic, and keeping your loads moving in severe weather. You sacrifice time with loved ones so businesses can keep operating and people can get the things they want and need.
During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week and every day of the year, we at Echo recognize our carrier partners for your dedication and perseverance. Your sacrifices keep the country running, and we are proud to work alongside you daily.
On behalf of the Echo team, thank you!
