Truck Driver Appreciation Gifts During A Pandemic

National Truck Driver Appreciation week won’t come around until September. But that just doesn’t seem soon enough in these times.

Through this pandemic, and through many other natural disasters and traumatic times, truck drivers work fearlessly to keep food on the shelves in all our towns. They are driving through the night, in storms, and through the traffic of evacuations and lockdowns.

The grocery stores, utilities businesses, vet clinics, medical facilities, and all those online shops rely on the trucking industry to get the things they depend on- the things you need.

And while that may be a lot of time alone- it certainly means stops at truck stops, rest areas, and gas stations. Truck drivers are risking their health to get the things we need delivered to us through these difficult times.

If your company has been dependent on a team of truckdrivers and suppliers, don’t forget to show them your appreciation. When this chaos is behind us, those companies that were grateful and treated their employees and truckdrivers well are going to stand out.
