Truck drivers make nearly every aspect of daily life possible by delivering products that people need. 2020 has obviously brought unique restrictions and complications because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Through it all, truck drivers have continued to deliver groceries, medical supplies and other essential products needed for everyday life.
About National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is an important time for America to thank all the professional truck drivers. They work hard undertaking one of our economy’s most demanding, important, and often thankless jobs. America celebrates National Truck Driver Appreciation Week during the second week of September, which takes on a special significance in 2020 considering the essential role truck drivers have had during the COVID-19 pandemic. And as a supplier of lubricants such as engine oils, transmission fluids, and coolants needed to keep trucks on the road, KW Oil is proud of the role we’ve played in keeping our country’s supply chain in motion.
America Showing Their Appreciation
The important role that truck drivers have played has not gone unnoticed. According to the American Trucking Association, “Americans in all 50 states have taken extraordinary steps to show their appreciation for the important work that professional truck drivers have done as we navigate our way through the coronavirus pandemic. From children passing out lunches, to ‘I Heart Truck’ signs across America’s highways, the public has taken notice of the essential role truck drivers play in their lives.” We are happy to hear of these kind gestures, as they are long overdue!
