It’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week


That’s right! From September 13 to 19, professional truck drivers across the country will be admired and acknowledged for their hard work and dedication in the industry. Businesses are offering promotions and hosting various events and tributes, such as free daily deals, coffee refills, and a health fair for free blood pressure screenings, glucose tests, and flu shots. For instance, TA and Petro Stopping Centers are providing fun and memorable activities for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, such as cornhole, basketball, live bands, truck windshield washing, and more. Click here to view their upcoming events.

To further commemorate approximately 3.5 million hard-working men and women who make up America’s trucking industry, I’d like to provide some interesting facts, courtesy of Planet Freight.

  • The trucking industry collects, on average, $650 billion in revenue each year. That is about 5% of America’s GDP.
  • In the United States, there are over 200,000 female long haul drivers.
  • There are about 15.5 million trucks operating in the United States today.
  • The top transported goods in the United States are clothing, food, furniture, and electrical machinery equipment/goods.
  • The trucking industry is expected to grow by about 21% over the next 10 years.
