West Virginia Trucking Association Appreciation

WV Trucking Association plans for national appreciation week

Most of the items West Virginians come in contact with throughout their days have come into their lives, at some point, via truck.

The West Virginia Trucking Association will join the American Trucking Associations and the entire industry Sept. 16-22 to salute the 3.1 million professional truck drivers who deliver America’s freight every day.

“Trucks bring it,” Jan Vineyard, president of the West Virginia Trucking Association, said in a news release. “From groceries and household items to the mail and industrial products, West Virginia’s professional truck drivers deliver the goods that state residents use.

“Truck drivers are essential to daily life and our state’s economy.”

The West Virginia Trucking Association plans to mark the week-long celebration with appreciation events for state trucking firms.

More than 3.1 million professional truck drivers nationwide log nearly 398 billion miles each year. Those men and women in 2001 delivered 67 percent of the U.S. freight tonnage – more than 9.2 billion tons of freight, and 80 percent of U.S. communities depend entirely on the trucking industry, according to a news release from the WVTA.

“Take a moment and recognize the significant contributions of our professional truck drivers,” Vineyard said in a news release. “The efficiency and safety that these drivers guarantee allow businesses and American citizens to confidently ship goods across state lines and throughout America.”
