Trucking moves America forward, representing one of the largest industries in the United States. Without truck drivers, our economy would come to a screeching halt. According to the American Trucking Association, there are approximately 3.5 million professional truck drivers, which together move over 70% of all the freight tonnage in the US. Moving 10.4 billion tons of freight each year requires over 3.6 million trucks, and we rely on our skilled fleet of drivers to operate them. These professional men and women log close to 724 billion miles annually and not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe. Our truck drivers are one of the most important pieces of our industry, and we appreciate their hard work, dedication, and commitment to moving our freight.
CPG is honored to work with over 650 independent contractors, from those who have just signed on this week, to our longtime partners of over 30 years. To celebrate their efforts, CPG’s terminals held a variety of activities and events including cookouts, trucking trivia games (for prizes like free oil changes!), coffee and donuts, truck washes, giveaways and more.
Here are some photos from the National Truck Driver Appreciation Week celebration at CPG:
