6 Ways to Celebrate National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Est. 2 min read

September 13-19 is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week! To celebrate, we’ve compiled a list of six ways you can show your truck drivers that you care.

#1: A Free Lunch

Some say “There’s no such thing as a free lunch,” but that doesn’t have to be the case during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week!

If your drivers are out on the road, Grubhub has a feature that lets organizations give their workers free credit toward a meal, which they can use for a lunch of their choice anywhere in the country.

#2: Local Business Discounts

Local businesses rely on truck drivers to supply them with goods and are more than happy to show they care. Reach out to popular shops or restaurants in your area about setting up a discount or free service for your drivers this week.

#3: Let the World Know

Call into your drivers’ favorite radio stations and give them a shout out. Discuss how safe and professional your drivers are and how much they impact not only your fleet, but how crucial they’ve been during our national emergency.

#4: Start Cleaning

When a driver pulls into your terminal during the week, give their truck a wash! Show them your appreciation by ensuring they have the cleanest, freshest equipment on the road.

#5: Make it Christmas in September

Everyone appreciates a gift, so it’s perfect for this week! Consider these 10 Holiday Gifts For Your Drivers for inspiration. These suggestions are good all year round.

#6: Let Them Know the Old Fashioned Way

Sending a simple thank you card to your drivers’ home addressed to them and their family goes a long way, especially when it comes directly from the CEO. Your drivers’ families make sacrifices too, having their loved ones on the road, especially in recent times, so it’s important to send them a thanks too.
