Midwest Carriers Celebrates Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2021

Truck Driver Appreciation Week is here. It’s a full week to celebrate and thank America’s hard-working truck drivers, especially our team here at Midwest Carriers. The trucking industry is the backbone of our economy, and our professional drivers are the industry’s beating heart. Not only are truck drivers committed to their careers, but they are committed to our country. Their dedication and sacrifice are deserving of our praise, recognition and appreciation.

Truck Drivers Keep the Wheels of the Country Turning

Did you know that more than 80% of U.S communities depend solely on trucking for the delivery of their good and commodities? Or that 70% of all freight in the U.S is delivered by truck drivers?

From the food we eat and the clothes we wear, to the medical supplies and equipment we use to stay healthy and safe – truck drivers get things where they need to be, on time. It’s true that our country would come to a complete halt without the truck drivers who deliver these important and essential resources. The 3.5 million hard working men and women in the driver seat are vital to our society.

When the World Stopped, They Kept Moving

We already knew they were extremely hardworking, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, America’s truck drivers showed true grit, dedication and selfishness. This past year, truck drivers took on a heroic role by delivering the essential goods that people around the country depended on. During such unprecedented times, our truck drivers made sacrifices to deliver for American families and help carry the nation through the pandemic. For this, we will be forever grateful.

Thank You, Truck Drivers

At Midwest Carriers, we like to think of every week as Truck Driver Appreciation Week, but we’re over-the-moon excited to show our drivers extra love these next seven days. Whether you know a truck driver personally or run into one at a grocery store or gas station, take the time to show your gratitude and say “Thanks!”.

To Midwest Carriers Drivers – thank you for being the best drivers in the industry. Words can’t describe how lucky we are to have you on our team. You keep Midwest Carriers moving, you keep the entire nation moving. Thank you for your dedication, your commitment and your persistent hard work. We are so grateful! Happy Truck Driver Appreciation Week!
