Proclamation

 

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

 

Whereas, this week, the Warren County Commissioners along with Crossett, Inc. and the entire trucking industry are beginning a weeklong celebration of the millions of professional truck drivers who deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day; and

 

Whereas, our nation’s professional truck drivers literally deliver for America every day. We are happy to take this week to recognize their hard work and dedication to the American people during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week; and

 

Whereas, celebrated annually, this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week runs from September 8 through September 14.

 

Whereas, there are more than 3.5 million professional truck drivers nationwide, including 150 in PA, NY and OH working for Crossett, Inc., delivering all of life’s essential goods from fuel to food, medicine to clothing. These hard-working professionals drove more than 724 billion miles last year, delivering nearly 10.8 billion tons of freight – accounting for roughly 70% of all freight moved in the United States. Eighty percent of U.S. communities depend solely on trucking to deliver goods.

 

Now, therefore, we the Warren County Commissioners asks you to join them and Crossett, Inc. in recognizing the significant contributions our professional truck drivers make to our lives. Their efforts contribute directly to our quality of life and truly move America forward.

 

ADOPTED this 11th day of September, 2019.
