This National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW), the National Tank Truck Carriers Inc (NTTC) extends its respect and gratitude to all the professional truck drivers that make everyday life possible.
We especially want to highlight the drivers in the tank truck sector. The tank truck industry plays a critical role in the North American economy and our segment’s enviable safety performance is due to the professional commitment of our drivers.
“The industry professionals that transport the gasoline that fuels our cars, the chlorine that purifies our water, the fertilizer that improves our crops, the paints that improve our homes, and even the syrup that sweetens our soft drinks are essential to American life as we know it,” said John Whittington, senior vice-president of Grammer Industries and current NTTC chairman. “We greatly appreciate all that they do for our country on the road, day in and day out.”
Daniel R Furth, president of NTTC, said: “In this time of capacity constraints across transportation, communicating our respect for professional drivers is more important than ever. Driver Appreciation Week gives us that opportunity, but it should also remind us that these hard-working professionals deserve our praise on each and every load.”
Angela Kane-Haas, chief financial officer of Kane Transport and NTTC first vice-chairwoman, added: “Professional drivers are the face of the tank truck industry. For many customers and consignees, the driver is the only company representative that they see most regularly.
“We’re proud of our drivers who really serve as ambassadors for our companies and stand as examples of the highest safety performance. Our drivers’ commitment to safety is paramount to the success of our carriers, our customers, and the many people with whom we share the road each day.”
