Truck Driver Appreciation Week

September 10 - 16, 2017

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is when America takes the time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.5 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, but they also keep our highways safe. 

California Trucking Association, along with American Trucking Associations and the entire trucking industry, is taking this week to honor the millions of professional truck drivers that deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day.
