Leawood, KS, August 27, 2012: Cline Wood Agency, along with the entire trucking industry, is taking the week of September 19th through 25th to honor the 3.1 million professional truck drivers that deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day.
“We are excited to be a part of this important celebration again this year. Honoring the men and women dedicated to keeping this country and all of us supplied with the things we need is a privilege we look forward to every year”, said John Cline, President and Co-Founder of Cline Wood.
During the National Truck Driver Appreciation and Wellness Week, Cline Wood Agency will celebrate by hosting THANK A TRUCKER! This event will be held on September 19th, 2012 beginning at 9am at the Mayview Scales located outside Odessa, Missouri on eastbound Highway 70. Cline Wood Agency employees will hand out gift bags to truck drivers stopping at the scales. The bags will contain various fun items including a healthy snack to emphasize the importance of the truck drivers’ health and wellness.
“Truck drivers are the heart of the trucking industry. Cline Wood Agency has shown how much we appreciate them during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week for many years.” said Tom Dickmeyer, CEO of Cline Wood Agency. “We wouldn’t miss it! We certainly hope to see you at the scales.”
There are over 3.1 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering life’s essentials. These professional men and women behind the wheel log close to 398 billion miles each year and in 2011 delivered 67 percent of the U.S. freight tonnage – or over 9.2 billion tons of freight. 80 percent of U.S. communities depend solely on the trucking industry. Professional truck drivers keep this country moving.
Americans across the country depend daily on the trucking industry to bring the essentials they need to live. Most never realize how the more than 3.1 million truck drivers improve their quality of life.
