GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo Trucks North America is celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 13-19, by recognizing the industry’s 3.5 million professional drivers for their role in transporting food, fuel, medications and other essential goods safely and on time, especially this year under the unprecedented conditions created by COVID-19.

“Professional truck drivers play an integral role in keeping our economy moving, and that was especially apparent since the onset of the pandemic this year, delivering everything from gasoline to groceries and medical supplies,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “Volvo Trucks would like to give these drivers the recognition they deserve and thank them for their commitment to the crucial job of transporting the food, cargo, consumer products and equipment that are essential to our everyday lives.”

Truck drivers comprise one of the most important workforces on the front lines of U.S. commerce and logistics. Volvo Trucks salutes their sacrifice, commitment and professionalism as they continue to work to accelerate our economy back to full speed, the company noted in a prepared statement.

Using the social media hashtags #NTDAW and #ThankATrucker on social media, Volvo Trucks is marking the week-long occasion by expressing its appreciation for professional truck drivers and reinforcing the efforts made by the company to keep drivers safe and productive on the job.
