Celebrating America's Truck Drivers
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is an annual, nationwide celebration and cornerstone program launched by the American Trucking Associations in 1988 to recognize and honor the vital contributions of truck drivers to our daily lives and the economy.
Throughout NTDAW, Americans come together to acknowledge and show their gratitude for the tireless efforts of the 3.6 million professional truck drivers who work tirelessly to deliver the essential goods and resources to communities across the nation. The impact of truck drivers is felt in every corner of the country, as more than 80% of U.S. communities rely exclusively on trucks to meet their freight transportation needs. From food, clothing, and medicine to household products, construction materials and heavy-duty equipment, the things that fill our lives and power our economy are made available thanks to a truck and a driver behind the wheel.
NTDAW serves as a reminder of the importance of these hardworking men and women and the sacrifices they make every day to keep America moving. It's a time to thank them for their dedication, commitment, and the many challenges they overcome to ensure that our goods are delivered safely, securely, and on time.
We invite you to join us as we celebrate this year's NTDAW from September 10-16, 2023.
