Thank You - Driver Appreciation

This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.  Many people do not know or understand the amount of time a Professional Driver invests in their profession. The demands or a Professional Driver's schedule often do not fit into the conventional 8-5 workday. It is not uncommon for a Professional Driver to begin their day between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM. Many drivers work 11-14 hours a day and might invest as many as 60-70 hours per week in their career.

FirstFleet is a carrier that is dedicated to meeting the needs of our business partners with excellence. Much of meeting this challenge is supported by our hard working Professional Driver community. Our Professional Drivers are a primary means of interaction with our business partners, and we are grateful for each individual who has joined our team. This week is set aside to honor and celebrate the nearly 2,000 Professional Drivers that support the core of our business.

Thank you for the professional manner in which you conduct yourself, for representing the organization well and for the hours you continually invest in meeting the challenges you are given.
