Thank You Drivers!
Sep 12, 2019
My dad spent his entire career as a truck driver. Like most professional truckers he was seemingly born with diesel in his veins. He drove both locally and over-the-road. As much as I can remember he pulled just about every kind of trailer you can imagine. Trucking was never just “a job,” it was his passion and his joy. It wasn’t always easy but I never remember him complaining about it.
This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. I want to start by thanking my dad for all his hard work and sacrifice. My mom stayed at home raising my siblings and I while my dad put in exhausting days and long miles hauling freight to support our family. He’d come home dead tired, but he’d still muster up the energy for a game of catch or to help me change the oil in my car. Then Sunday night he’d be in the shop greasing the fifth wheel and prepping his rig for another week on the road. I am so proud to call him my Trucker Dad!
Autumn Transport is made up of men and women like my dad. Our drivers are professional, owner-operators who make all kinds of sacrifices of their own to provide for themselves and their loved ones. It doesn’t matter if they are pulling a van, hopper, end dump, liquid or pneumatic tanker. The commitment our drivers show to service, on-time pick-up and delivery, and safe driving is second to none.
Life as a trucker is not easy and it isn’t for everyone. The days are long, the weather can be brutal, the roadways are dangerous and ever changing. Government regulations don’t seem to make things any easier sometimes. And yet Autumn Transport’s team of drivers continue to exemplify our company values of Service, Leadership, Family and Integrity week after week. We are so proud of you all. Without YOU there is no US.
During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week we recognize you. You are valued and appreciated!
Thank you drivers for all you do!
