Truck Driver Appreciation week is celebrated nationally September 9-15, but we celebrate all month long! Drivers deliver the lives that we have today – our food, clothing, industrial products, fuel and everything in between. Life would be much different without the hard work of truck drivers.
We appreciate every sacrifice that drivers and their families make. We recognize that a home-based support system is crucial to driver success and overall career enjoyment, and we emphasize that sense of family at J.B. Hunt by providing a 24/7 support system and making sure that 90% of our drivers are home daily or weekly.
Recent National Truck Driving Champion Louie, explains what that J.B. Hunt sense of family means for him,
“When I started working for J.B. Hunt, I was doing it to take care of my family. What I didn’t know, was how J.B. Hunt would become my family.”
Drivers and their families deserve to be celebrated all year long, and we are excited to be involved in so many events and festivities showing our appreciation! Find which Truck Driver Appreciation events are happening near you by talking to your manager or visit MyJBHunt for the calendar.
We look forward to sharing your photos and videos with the rest of the J.B. Hunt family, so be sure to send them our way! Send them to us on our J.B. Hunt Drivers Facebook page, and we will add them to the Truck Driver Appreciation 2018 album. If you are on Twitter or Instagram, tag us or use #JBHTDA!
Thank you, drivers. Thank you for delivering EVERYTHING!
