National Truck Driver Appreciation & Wellness Week 2016

Join Prime in celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation & Wellness Week, September 11-17, 2016. This annual event, sponsored by American Trucking Associations (ATA), honors our nation’s drivers for their commitment to excellence. Prime has added the “wellness” portion to this event in an effort to remind all drivers that their health is important to us, their families, and the safety of our nation’s highways.

During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, America takes the time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.5 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe. Truck drivers keep America moving!

Think about it… virtually any finished product you buy is handled by a truck driver at some point–food, fuel, medicine, clothing, furniture–the list could on for days! Drivers keep the country’s economy afloat, and it’s important to pay tribute to these hard-working men and women.

Prime, Inc. wants to spread the health and fitness culture within the trucking industry, and also encourage others to focus on the importance of drivers. This is the perfect opportunity to reflect and appreciate those that deliver our nation’s freight safely and securely, while also promoting healthy lifestyles for truck drivers. National Truck Driver Appreciation & Wellness Week has not one, but two goals!
