Yakima, WA; Portland, OR; Tumwater, WA; Seattle, WA – Haney Truck Line and Evergreen Pacific Partners, along with American Trucking Associations and the entire trucking industry, are taking this week to honor the millions of professional truck drivers that deliver America’s freight safely and securely every day.

“Haney sees its drivers as some of the safest and most professional truck drivers on the road today.” Mike Meredith, Haney Truck Line Director of Professional Development.

During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 13-19, Haney Truck Line will mark the celebration by holding barbecues for all of its drivers at its Portland, Yakima and Tumwater terminals.

There are over 3.4 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering everything from essential goods to back to school supplies. These professional men and women behind the wheel log close to 421 billion miles annually and last year, they delivered 68.8% of the U.S. freight tonnage – or 9.96 billion tons. 80 percent of U.S. communities depend solely on the trucking industry. Professional truck drivers keep this country moving forward.

Haney and Evergreen ask you to take a moment and recognize the significant contributions of our professional truck drivers. The efficiency and safety that these drivers guarantee allow business and American citizens to confidently ship goods across state lines and throughout America. Haney and Evergreen want to especially thank the 400+ professional drivers of Haney Truck Line. To learn more about how essential the trucking industry is, visit www.ntdaw.org.
