2022 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

NTDAW 22 logoThis week, September 11-17, 2022, is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW). Logistics Plus (which was founded and is owned by a former truck driver) and its sister company, National Truckload (NTL), would like to thank the 3.6 million professional men and women for their hard work in undertaking one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These truck drivers deliver our goods safely, securely, and on time. We ask that you please join us this week to celebrate and honor our truck drivers for all of their hard work and dedication.

Americans in all fifty states have taken extraordinary steps to show their appreciation for the important work that professional truck drivers have done as we navigate our way through the coronavirus pandemic. From children passing out lunches, to “I Heart Truck” signs across America’s highways, the public has taken notice of the essential role truck drivers play in their lives. While it’s impossible to individually recognize each driver, we thank you for your crucial role in keeping our society moving forward during these challenging times.
