It’s almost that time of year again! That’s right, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is just around the corner. From September 10 - September 16, organizations will be honoring those unsung heroes -- truck drivers.
Although they seldom get the credit they deserve, truck drivers are the backbone of the U.S. economy. Considering that over 70% of all freight tonnage is transported via trucks, America would come to a stop if it wasn’t for truckers. In addition to being an important occupation, it’s also a very dangerous one -- with thousands of people dying each year!
