This week, American Trucking Association jump started National Truck Driver Appreciation Week to celebrate the 3.5 million men and woman who keep America moving. This week long event is celebrated September 8 through the 14. National Truck Driver Appreciation Week provides the industry the opportunity to recognize truck drivers for all that they do. This is the week that everyone takes time out of their day to honor and thank the truck drivers for their hard work and long hours they have dedicated on the road.
At Arnold Oil Company, our drivers are the back bone of our company. Drivers spend hours on the road, engaging with customers to ensure the best customer service, and most importantly, have safety as their number one priority. To celebrate all that our drivers do, Arnold Oil Company will be celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation throughout the entire week.
Drivers will receive a gift bag with custom A-Line Auto Parts koozies, pens sponsored by our suppliers, and a handwritten thank you card from Jim Arnold, President of Arnold Oil Company, Jayson Arnold, President of Arnold Oil Fuels, and Gary Gregory, Senior Vice President of Arnold Oil Company. Drivers who had outstanding safety records also received a custom designed National Driver Appreciation Week shirt. The Marketing Department also launched a digital campaign, where drivers are being recognized on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Drivers will also be recognized at each of our ware house locations with a cook off dedicated to their hard work.
“Truck drivers play a critical role, not only in our economy, but here at Arnold Oil too.” President Jim Arnold states, “I couldn’t be more proud of our drivers and all the hard work they do….from being on the road for hours, dealing with Austin traffic, to ensuring our customers are well taken care of in a safe and timely manner.”
