National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 11-17, honors America’s 3.5 million truck drivers. Trucking companies and others will recognize truckers with events, discounts and more.

“People in the industry have tremendous respect for truck drivers and NTDAW gives us a chance to demonstrate that support while also expanding our message to people outside the industry who might not understand the high-level of commitment that these men and women have for their careers,” said ATA First Vice Chairman Kevin Burch.
