The industry is coming together to recognize the drivers who keep America running.
Sept. 11-17, 2016 is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, and in honor of the holiday, a number of industry groups will come together during the week to recognize the 3.5 million drivers and the roughly four million support personnel in the industry.
According to the American Trucking Association, more than 80% of U.S. communities depend solely on trucking for delivery of their goods and commodities. In 2015, that translated to almost 10.5 billion tons of freight carried across the country by these hard-working men and women. As a partner with hundreds of travel centers and fueling stations, Chester’s is proud to stand with our country’s professional drivers for all they do.
