It may be a coincidence that this week is designated by our industry as National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, but by the time this week is over, our country will owe a greater debt of appreciation to the men and women who drive a truck for a living than at any time in recent memory.

The images from Houston TX of the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey and the potential of even more destruction in Florida from Hurricane Irma are both heartbreaking – in terms of the loss of life and massive destruction of property, and heartwarming – in the heroic efforts of ordinary people to help their neighbors, friend and stranger alike, to escape the flooding and bring them, their children, pets, etc. to safety.

By now you have seen the images of the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the devastation it left in its path. There is untold loss of property and that doesn't even compare to the loss of life that many are grieving today. Our hearts and prayers go out to those impacted by this horrific event.

In spite of the harsh realities we continue to hear stories of hope and unity from the communities impacted. You have seen individuals rescuing people they don't know, stores opening their doors for shelter and even large scale fund raising events like this one by J.J. Watt which is currently at $28 million dollars and counting

This band is roughly 65 miles wide, and extends from Oregon to South Carolina. We want our drivers to watch their speed and distance as normal, but be prepared for additional interstate congestion.

As part of our continuing efforts to communicate well with our driver community we are excited to announce the release of a new version of our mobile app. Stats on the FirstFleet Mobile App show us that a great number of our drivers are regularly using the app to help plan and confirm their trips, review their pay, find fuel stops and much more.

The mobile app is designed to allow our driver community to quickly locate information pertaining to their daily tasks and to stay connected through tools like load planning, fuel economy, payroll history, training and more. If you not presently using the mobile app I would encourage you to visit the app market for your phone and give it a test drive today.
