Penske Thanks U.S. Drivers During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

In today’s world, nearly every aspect of daily life is made possible because a truck driver delivered the goods and resources people need. And as our world faced unprecedented challenges throughout the coronavirus pandemic, it was our resilient and committed truck drivers who kept our businesses, grocery stories and hospitals stocked with the essential items needed to keep us safe.

Penske Logistics is joining the American Trucking Associations in recognizing National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) to thank our safe, professional truck drivers.

“The past 24 months have strained supply chains across the world, and our professional drivers have kept our supply chains and our world moving," said Jeff Jackson, executive vice president of dedicated contract carriage operations, Penske Logistics. “Penske is committed to helping our professional drivers move ahead. On behalf of Penske Logistics’ leadership, I’m proud to recognize our drivers for their outstanding efforts and dedication to serving our customers.”

NTDAW, sponsored by the American Trucking Associations, began on Sunday and continues through Saturday, Sept. 17.

The ATA hosts NTDAW to recognize the 3.6 million professional truck drivers who help to keep highways safe as they deliver goods across the country.

Penske Logistics appreciates the extraordinary contribution of its more than 11,000 safe and professional truck drivers across Canada and the U.S. who help keep the world moving forward.

Last week, the company honored our drivers in Canada as part of National Trucking Week.
