Sunday kicked off National Truck Driver Appreciation Week - a week-long celebration honoring the 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the U.S.  As transportation professionals, we recognize how much these hard-working individuals do, but most consumers are not aware.  Here are some things you may not know about our nation's professional truck drivers. 

  • The trucking industry is an essential driver of our econmy, contributing $738.9 billion in revenue a year.
  • There are 3.5 million truck drivers in the United States.  The total trucking industry employment is 7.3 million.
  • These men and women move more than 10 billion tons of freight each year.
  • Through their dedication and endless hours, truck drivers travel over 4.5 billion collective miles a year, making sure that the things we often take for granted are readily available.
  • In the U.S., 90 percent of communities rely exclusively on truck drivers for their every-day goods and necessities.

During this week-long celebration, we would like to recognize these hard-working individuals for their commitment to one of the economy's most important and demanding jobs.  On behalf of all of us at Precision Insurance and Financial Services, we would like to extend a sincere thank you to America's truck drivers.

While you are working around the clock, we are dedicated to assisting you along the way.  At Precision Insurance and Financial Services, it is our mission to protect and maximize your assets and make your job easier, while you are on the road.  

 Thank you for keeping this country moving!
