National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Miles of Gratitude – National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

National Tradition

From September 10 to 16, 2023, our nation celebrated National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) under the theme “Miles of Gratitude.” Established in 1988 by the American Trucking Associations, NTDAW annually honors truck drivers’ vital contributions to our lives and the economy. It’s a time when we collectively salute these remarkable individuals who power our economy.

Moreover, with over 3.6 million dedicated truck drivers traversing our nation’s highways, their tireless efforts fuel our daily lives. They ensure essential goods reach every corner of our land, supporting over 80% of U.S. communities relying exclusively on trucks for their freight needs. From the food on our tables to the clothes on our backs, these unsung heroes make it all possible.

In addition, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week serves as a powerful reminder of their significance, offering an annual salute to their unwavering dedication and the sacrifices they make to keep America moving forward safely, securely, and on time.
