American Substance Abuse Professionals Recognizes Drivers during 2022 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
Cockeysville, Maryland — Today, American Substance Abuse Professionals (ASAP), along with American Trucking Associations and the entire trucking industry is beginning a weeklong celebration of the millions of professional truck drivers who deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day.
“During the best, and worst times, our nation’s professional truck drivers work hard delivering goods for Americans,” said Laura Dashner, CEO, of ASAP. “National Truck Driver Appreciation week is a time to rally around our professional truck drivers and show them the appreciation they deserve every day. We are thrilled to take this opportunity to recognize these men and women who show their dedication, perseverance, and determination on our nation’s highways.”
Celebrated annually, this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week runs from September 11-17, 2022. Professional truck drivers always stepped up when needed most and have kept the economy on its feet despite facing unprecedented obstacles.
There are more than 3.6 million professional truck drivers nationwide delivering the essential goods our families rely on – from food to fuel to medicine to clothing. The hard-working men and women behind the wheel safely transport over 10 billion tons of goods and products every year, which accounts for 70% of America’s total annual freight. 80% of U.S. communities depend solely on trucking to deliver goods.
This year, ASAP asks you to join us and American Trucking Associations (ATA) in recognizing the significant contributions our professional truck drivers make to our lives. Their efforts contribute greatly to our quality of life and truly move America forward.
