Ground Transportation: BTX Celebrates Truck Driver Appreciation Week

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) was founded in 1998 by the American Trucking Association (ATA) to honor the hard work of the men and women that deliver the goods that keep America moving on a daily basis. This year, NTDAW takes place from September 11-17, 2022. 

This year, BTX Global Logistics recognized Bacarella Trucking drivers and BTX staff members with an "Employee Appreciation Bundle" for Labor Day that included exercise equipment and sanitization supplies to promote health and fitness. 

Ground Freight - Thank a Truck DriverThere are many ways to honor these valued road warriors that confront inclement weather, natural disasters and strikes to deliver critical supplies and other items to local stores and businesses each day. Below are some ideas for you or your company to try to help create a culture of appreciation for these unsung heroes, especially during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week:

  • Say "thank you" to a trucker or driver delivering goods to your home or business
  • Write a "thank you note" (or have your kids make one) for a driver and their family. Your drivers' families truly sacrifice by having their loved ones on the road for long hours each day. 
  • Use social media to say "thank you" by using the following hashtags - #ThankATrucker #NTDAW
  • Keep truckers parked on the side of the road to rest safe by ensuring proper distance when driving by them on the highway
  • Treat your drivers to a meal at your workplace or with gift cards to popular road stops in your drivers’ areas
  • Put together a gift packet with useful items for your drivers such as polarized sunglasses, gel-foam seat cushions, head lamps, hand sanitizer, and comfortable sleep berth mattresses for those that do long-hauls
