September 8-14, 2019 has been designated as National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. This is the time we as industry thank our drivers for the important, outstanding and professional job they perform each day.
Many companies hold cookouts at various company locations, provide food and refreshments, display banners of recognition, and show appreciation for their drivers. As you have your activities, please take pictures and sent them to SCTA.
The South Carolina Trucking Association, its SC Safety Management Council and the Charleston Motor Carriers Association, with assistance from W. Lee Flowers, will be cooking hamburgers and hotdogs for our drivers on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at the WESTBOUND Dorchester Scales (Harleyville on I-26) from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. The SC State Transport Police will allow us to use the back lot at the scale location for the cook out.
We want to spend time talking and discussing issues that are important to drivers as they stop in and get something to eat. We want to express to them how important they and the jobs they do are to our companies, state and nation.
If you or your company would like to be with us and show your appreciation to our industry drivers, please complete this form and return it to us to let us know. We need members (CEOs, safety directors, dispatchers, and supervisors, etc.) to help serve the drivers and to express our appreciation.
Be sure your company drivers are aware of the date, location and time of the SC Driver appreciation cookout!
