MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Cornerstone Systems, along with American Trucking Associations and the entire trucking industry, is honoring the millions of professional truck drivers this week who work to deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day.
“Truck drivers are the lifeblood of our economy,” Carter Glenn, Risk Manager stated. “More than 80% of U.S. communities depend solely on trucking for delivery of their goods and commodities. These drivers deserve recognition and this week is exactly for that. Everyone should take the time to reach out and thank them for all that they do.”
There are more than 3.5 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering everything from food to local grocery stores to books to neighborhood schools. These professional men and women log close to 724 billion miles annually and last year, delivered over 70% of the U.S. freight tonnage – or 10.77 billion tons. 80 percent of U.S. communities depend solely on the trucking industry for their goods and commodities. Professional truck drivers keep this country moving forward.
Cornerstone Systems asks you to take this week to recognize the significant contributions of our professional truck drivers. The efficiency and safety that these drivers guarantee allow businesses and American citizens to confidently ship goods across state lines and to every corner of the country.
Cornerstone Systems wants to especially thank the 210,888 professional truck drivers who help us continue to deliver exceptional customer service.
