Your truck drivers are tirelessly moving essential supplies throughout the nation. The entire trucking industry hauls more than 10 billion tons of freight annually, more than two thirds of the total freight tonnage moved nationally, according to the American Trucking Association.
As shoppers continue to empty shelves of numerous products, drivers are preparing to spend hours on the highway to replenish inventories. Across the United States, the nation’s 3.5 million professional truckers are working flat-out to keep stores and businesses stocked with inventory.
Federal officials have relaxed some rules about the hours truckers can work to help address the urgent need to move food and supplies. Guidelines for drivers as written by Freight Waves Research include Maintain personal distance, Remain in the truck during loading and unloading, Not share pens for signature, Wear gloves when exchanging paperwork, and Use fuel cards to purchase disinfectants. Also high on the list of drivers’ concerns that are being addressed include Rest areas closed, Truck stop service unavailable, Crowds at truck stops, and Showers being closed at truck stops.
Together, as a community and a nation, we will overcome this current health crisis. Together we will accomplish the economic rebound and recovery we are and will face.
