September is National Truck Driver Appreciation through-and-through. From the countless giveaways to the official week, September 13th to the 19th is the time to celebrate truckers.
Truckers push themselves. You can count on truckers to carry the load, across vast distances, inch on without even a lick of sleep. Without pause, they arrive at each destination on-time, with delivery of food, goods or cattle to unload.
Should truckers drive during the COVID-19 pandemic? Absolutely. All the more reason for observing National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, from September 13th to the 19th.
3.5 million truck driving men and women serve professionally, according to American Trucking Associations (ATA), as purveyors of pavement. Angels of the asphalt. Heroes to the highway. It’s only right to celebrate their commitment to servitude that helps the right product ship at the right time. As United States Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao efficiently drives the point home, “Thank God for truckers.”
To show their trucker pride, major companies in the industry are making September a month of steals, deals and giveaways. Details on the next exit.
PILOT FLYING J
For all of September, Pilot Flying J is showcasing offers unparalleled in the industry. Free drinks daily, shower passes after any fill-up past 75 gallons and even a JPRO diagnostics test on-the-house. Access these offers through the app or pulling over at any of their company-run stores – 750 in the U.S. alone. If that isn’t the truck’s nuts, Americana Artist Ray Wylie Hubbard thanks the trucking community in a tearjerker.
LOVE’S TRAVEL STOPS & COUNTRY STORES
Love’s is already coming off strong with their fandom. They always give fresh food deals if the road hungers for something besides a soul. 18-wheeler dealers can grab a free hat after wearing some gloves. Furthermore, if truckers still feel dirty, free shower credits are a fix. Additionally, Love’s gives a one-million point prize weekly! Love’s lives up to it’s name, yet again!
TRAVELCENTERS OF AMERICA
TA wears their “I Heart Truckers” Trucker Hat by having a month-long sweepstakes for all UltraONE loyalty program members. Whenever they make a purchase or swipe away their loyalty, eligible truckers can win several prizes. Truckers can take their wheels off the ground for a continental holiday. Or, if a CAT is feeling fancy, why not a motorcycle or watch? There’s also the grand prize of 1,500,000 UltraONE loyalty points available to active drivers who push themselves to the limit.
Point is, whatever cargo you’re looking to grab, America is here for you guys. Just keep trucking and we won’t stop hugging.
