3 Reasons to Thank a Trucker

With the holidays just around the corner, many of us get to celebrate and relax by spending time with our families. Many industries shut down for the day on Thanksgiving and Christmas to give employees some much-needed time off.

But there’s one industry that comes to mind that doesn’t stop around the holidays. In fact, this industry never stops. It keeps America rolling. That industry is the trucking industry. Trucker holidays are hard to come by because truckers sometimes don't get the chance to be home when they want because of their job responsibilities. Often underappreciated, truckers have to go through a lot of challenges that we do not. We would like to take this chance to sincerely thank truckers for doing what they do, and give you some reasons as to why you should too:

If You Got It, a Truck Brought It

People don't usually think about where goods have come from and how it got there. If you can buy it, eat it, or use it, it's been delivered by truck to the store or company you bought it from. Really, anything anyone has ever bought, used, eaten, or worn, has been on a truck. We wouldn't have anything if it wasn’t for truckers.

Truckers Save Lives

Truckers have a knack for knowing how to survive on the road. Even better though, truckers often use their abilities selflessly. We call them "Highway Angels." They can be seen performing random acts of kindness by helping fellow motorists out in times of need. Whether it's helping change a spare tire, or actually helping save the lives of others, truckers often put others before themselves.

Truckers Work for You to Enjoy Holidays

Truckers help us to enjoy spending time with our family and friends by doing the jobs we can’t. Trucking isn’t for everybody; and to have goods we need in a timely manner, truckers have to make sacrifices that others do not. When others stop working, they keep rolling to make sure others can have the goods they need to enjoy time with their friends and family.

Make Sure to Thank a Trucker

So as the holiday season rolls around, make sure to think about those that make the sacrifices others don’t. Truckers are oftentimes underappreciated workers, but they’re what makes America go. If you get the chance to do so, make sure to thank a trucker for what they do.
