Appreciation Week: Fleetmaster celebrates anniversary too

Fleetmaster Express, Inc., which is based in Roanoke, Va., will observe the 19th annual celebration of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week and the company’s 28th year in business Sept. 13-19.

Fleetmaster Express celebrates Truck Driver Appreciation Week and the company’s anniversary.

As part of its appreciation efforts, Fleetmaster is giving each of its drivers a duffle bag and hat, both printed with the company logo, a $50 Walmart gift card, and other promotional items. There will be daily raffles of valuable items purchased by the company as well as items donated from vendors such as tires, gift cards, and other prizes.

“We wish to express our gratitude and commend our drivers – and all drivers – on their dedication and professionalism,” said Travis Smith, Fleetmaster’s chief operating officer. “Regardless of the challenging economic environment, we must recognize the hard work and effort of our drivers. Without them, we would not be able to give our customers the superior service they deserve.”

Fleetmaster’s owner and President Carl Bumgarner said, “Much of our past success is attributable to the high level of professionalism from our drivers. This week we offer our thanks to these men and women for their outstanding safe service and contribution to getting the freight to our nation’s doorstep.”

The Fleetmaster companies operate over 300 trucks and 1,400 trailers out of 14 terminals, offering over-the-road, local, and dedicated hauling as well as freight brokerage, warehousing, and spotting services.
