Wondering what's happening today in semi-truck industry news? Here's a newsflash for you: Truck drivers of America, it's your week! The ATA is celebrating truck drivers across the nation with National Truck Driver Appreciation week, which kicked off on Sunday, the 11th and runs through Saturday, the 17th of September.
In honor of the nation's semi-truck drivers, industry leaders are offering all kinds of events and promotions and raising awareness about the value of America's truckers and their invaluable contributions to commerce. It takes a special kind of individual to be willing to drive long hours and spend considerable amounts of time away from their family to ensure that shelves stay stocked and crucial things like medicines, food and books reach their destinations intact and on time.
Some companies, like Love's, are dedicating the entire month to drivers by giving away more than 20 million My Love rewards points. Two thousand of its loyalty members will win 10,000 points instantly, for a total value of $100. Drivers can enter to win a whopping 500,000 points just by swiping their My Love reward cards at the fuel pump, when paying for tires, or on merchandise all month long. And RoadPro has partnered with a number of brands such as SiriusXM, Globetech, Garmin, Howes and others to give drivers a chance to win brand name products with their Prize-A-Day Giveaway promotion. So drivers, pay attention. Lots of trucking-friendly companies have good things in store for you this week!
We at Sam's Truck Sales would like to congratulate and thank you for all your hard work and service to businesses all over the country! Be sure to contact us when you're in the market for a new rig!
