It’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, and we wanted to take a moment to show our gratitude for the many contributions that truck drivers make to this great country of ours on a daily basis — contributions that too often go unrecognized.

We know that without the hard work and dedication of professional truck drivers, our way of life would come to a grinding halt. The food we eat, the clothes on our backs, and the tech we use in our homes, schools, and workplaces all need to be delivered via truck. So we’d just like to say:

Thank you, truck drivers.

Trucker Appreciation Quotes

At Omnitracs, we know the trucking industry inside and out, and we understand how important good drivers are to a trucking company. We want to take a moment to express our gratitude through these thank-you quotes for truck drivers.

Thank You for Your Commitment

Operating such a large, complex vehicle is hardly an easy task. It takes serious time and effort to acquire the skills needed to handle a truck — and not everyone can do it. And that’s just learning the basics. There’s always more training to be had, from mastering the latest new technology to learning a new company’s way of doing things.

Thank you for your unwavering commitment to being the very best at what you do.

Thank You for Your Professionalism

There aren’t many other jobs out there where a momentary lapse in attention could be so dangerous — but for truck drivers, it’s a daily reality. That’s why drivers are hyper vigilant when it comes to safety. They know every best practice, every company rule, and every newly-updated law. They scrupulously follow each one to the letter because they know just how serious the consequences could be if they didn’t.

Thank you for your professionalism in every aspect of your job.

Thank You for Your Sacrifices 

It’s a simple fact: truck drivers don’t get to be at home as often as most other people. Whether they’re leaving at the crack of dawn and getting home late, or staying on the road for weeks at a time, it’s definitely not a typical 9-5 job. And that kind of schedule comes with some major sacrifices. Professional drivers know how to make every minute spent with family and friends count.

Thank you for the sacrifices you make to keep this country moving.

Thank You for Being You

It’s no secret that truck drivers are special, independent, tough, and capable. Without that legendary truck driver spirit, our nation, and our lives, would look very different.

You make a difference in the world every day, just by virtue of being you. And we sincerely thank you.

Thanks to Truckers: 5 Reasons to Be Grateful for Truck Drivers

Truckers are part of the lifeblood of our country, bringing goods from one coast to the other, and then back again. It’s not the easiest job, but it can be rewarding for the right person. Too often we take our truck drivers for granted, and so we wanted to shine a little light on why we should appreciate them more. Here are just a few reasons why we’re celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week:

1: They’re Committed to the Job

Trucking isn’t for the faint-hearted, but it does attract some remarkable individuals. Truck drivers who have been on the road for many years know the demands of the job, but they also like what they get from it. They’re committed to their work, and they treat the job with respect.

2: They Keep Things Running Smoothly

Trucks in America carry billions of tons of freight each year. If trucks in this country suddenly didn’t start one morning, we’d have a catastrophe on our hands. Truck drivers go out every morning, even before first light, and make sure that businesses around the country have what they need to thrive and grow.

3: They Know the Importance of Family

There’s no doubt about it, truck drivers have to make some sacrifices when it comes to their schedule. They don’t get off at 5:00 every day to pick up their kids from soccer practice. Truck driving is a job that requires putting in days at a time on the road, but it also means that they have days off when they aren’t even allowed to drive. Truck drivers know the importance of family, and work to balance their responsibilities at home with their time on the road.

4: Their Driving Skills Are Second to None

The news covers accidents involving trucks heavily, so to the general public, it can seem as though truck drivers are dangerous. However, fleet managers know that they really are some of the best and safest drivers out there. In fact, multiple studies have shown that in car-truck accidents, car drivers are at fault around 80-90% of the time. Accidents involving trucks make the news because of the potential damage that a big truck can do, but truck drivers are professionals who care about safety on the road.

5: Truckers Bring Us Everything We Enjoy

Truck drivers bring us the goods we use every day. In our society, it’s easy to forget that just about everything we buy didn’t come from our immediate area. Truck drivers keep it all moving toward the stores that we eventually walk into. Without truck drivers, our selection at the convenience store would be pretty limited. If you get a chance today or this week, don’t forget to thank a trucker!

Thanking Truckers With Tools and Technology

Truck drivers rarely get the public praise and appreciation they deserve. However, at Omnitracs, we do our best to ensure they get the tools they need to demonstrate their commitment and showcase their professionalism. Our solutions help truck drivers stay safe and compliant while doing their job at the highest level possible — and for our nation’s truck drivers, that’s pretty high.

We also know that the industry is going through a tech revolution, and the only way to stay on top is to keep up with these innovations. If your trucking company could use better fleet management software, then give us a call today.
