Kansas-based bulk propane and propane tank supplier celebrates its 2,500 professional drivers during Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Kansas-based Ferrellgas honored its 2,500 “world-class” bulk propane delivery drivers this week during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week by thanking them via social media posts and hosting celebrations at local offices.

“Our culture is best defined by the strength, passion, and enduring spirit of our Ferrellgas and Blue Rhino drivers,” said Tamria Zertuche, chief operating officer for Ferrellgas.

“We celebrate our drivers throughout the year because their importance is foundational to our company. Our drivers are a wonderful group of tireless, dedicated professionals, and I couldn’t be more proud to recognize them, as well as all of our nation’s drivers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.”

Ferrellgas delivers bulk propane to “hundreds of thousands” of homes, businesses, and farms nationwide, and its Blue Rhino brand delivers propane tanks to more than 60,000 selling locations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

American Trucking Associations’ annual National Truck Driver Appreciation Week encourages Americans to thank our nation’s approximately 3.6 million drivers for taking on one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs.

“Our drivers are the face of Ferrellgas in literally every community we serve,” said Tim Sayers, Ferrellgas’ vice president of retail operations. “Whether they’re navigating interstate highways or county backroads, their focus on safety and attention to every detail is what makes them the very best in our industry.

“We hear time and again how much our customers appreciate their Ferrellgas driver.”

Geoffrey Jaynes, VP of Blue Rhino operations, agreed, saying Blue Rhino drivers also lift hundreds of propane tanks daily during their numerous stops at retail stores and home delivery locations. “Driving is a demanding job, and our Blue Rhino drivers are a particularly special group,” he said. “They know the tanks they deliver can fuel anything from memorable backyard experiences to emergency standby generators during a major storm to so much more. It’s a tremendous responsibility and one they embrace fully.”
