There’s no question that truck drivers have been working harder this year than ever before, making sure that America’s goods have kept moving throughout all the challenges of 2020. While other people have stayed home, our drivers have been on the frontlines to deliver food, medical supplies and other important items to their destinations. As an industry we’ve always looked forward to National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) to take the time to honor driving professionals for all the hard work they do. Now more than ever, we want to make sure our drivers feel noticed, appreciated, and encouraged. This year’s NTDAW takes place September 13-19, 2020. In appreciation for all you do, we at Averitt Express have some fun things planned that you won’t want to miss.
Some of your favorite nationwide truck stops are offering special deals and giveaways during NTDAW and throughout the month of September too. Let us know which deals and prizes you’re looking forward to the most!
At Averitt, we’re so excited to host daily giveaways for our drivers. We’ll be giving away some awesome Blue Parrot headsets, Blue Beacon truck washes, Garmin GPS systems, Cintas uniform gift certificates, CB radios, associate reward points and Averitt-branded merchandise. We’ll also be giving away iPad and Galaxy tablets, which are great for staying organized and keep you connected with your friends and family. Feeling hungry? We’ll have boxed lunches available across our network for drivers and associates. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re proud to assign brand new 2021 Freightliner Cascadia tractors to five lucky Averitt drivers! You definitely won’t want to miss celebrating NTDAW with us this year.
