Driver Appreciation Week 5

This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. We asked drivers to tell us some of the things that make their day, and each day this week we’re going to share a different way to show your appreciation to a truck driver.

Access to Facilities

When drivers arrive at the delivery dock, they’ve likely just spent a few hours behind the wheel. Give them access to the facilities. Better yet, have a trucker lounge where they can wait while getting unloaded.

A couch, cup of coffee, or just access to the bathroom is a simple gesture of appreciation for the person who just safely delivered your valuable freight.
